Images of the Altamaha River Delta
Beginning near Atlanta and north of Athens Georgia the Ocmulgee and Oconee Rivers flow through the piedmont past farms, fields, and industry joining in Lumber City to form the Altamaha River. Just south of this point, the Ohoopee River flows into the Altamaha. Running 137 miles from the confluence to the sea, the Altamaha drains ¼ of the state of Georgia delivering a major source of freshwater to the Atlantic Coast.
Just north of Darien, nearing the edge of the lower coastal plain, the Altamaha fans out into the Altamaha Delta. There are four major legs to the Altamaha Delta. From the south, the major legs are: the South Altamaha, Champney, Butler and the Darien Rivers respectively. The pulse of the Delta is the constant flow of freshwater meeting the incoming and outgoing tides of the coast. This ever-present pulse has dictated life on the Delta for millennia.
