Chattahoochee River @ Medlock Bridge

Norcross, Georgia

There is no public access to the river at Medlock Bridge Road and there are no trails , but people do fish and boat on this part of the river. The National Park Service's Jones Bridge Unit is located a few miles downstream and has excellent public access where many people wade in the river, hike and walk their dogs.

E.coli samples are collected each week by the National Park Service. The sampling site is located at Medlock Bridge Road near the top of the 48-mile Chattahoochee National Recreation Area (CRNRA) along the Chattahoochee River.

Tests are taken weekly and results are updated to SWIM GUIDE every Friday.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
