The lower 28 miles of the Savannah River flowing past the industrial area of Chatham County and Savannah and into the Atlantic Ocean were surveyed. These waters once supported commercial American shad and oyster fisheries, but because of pollution discharged to the river, the waters were closed to shellfishing. Data are presented on water uses, sources of wastes (sewage, industrial wastes, oxygen-demanding wastes, and acid wastes), dispersion of wastes, bacterial pollution, oxygen demand and dissolved oxygen, oil pollution, and radioactivity.
