Satilla River - Jamestown Landing

Waycross, Georgia

Jamestown Landing is located in Ware County off of Jamestown Road northwest of Waycross Georgia. This landing provides a concrete launching ramp with a view of the old, disconnected rail line and the existing rail line just downstream. This is a popular location for the local fisherman. There are no facilities at this location. Bring your picnic and find a tree on the banks of this blackwater stream. Make sure to check out the cypress swamp to the left side of the landing.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Satilla Riverkeeper monitors water quality at seven recreational sites on the Satilla River in Georgia. Satilla has been part of Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division outreach program Adopt-A-Stream (AAS) since January of 2014. Satilla Riverkeeper monitoring program is managed by Mary Freund.

Water at all sites is sampled for E. coli bacteria, as well as for dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, and temperature. Samples are monthly, from May through October. Sites may be re-sampled if elevated levels are encountered.

Samples are collected the first or second Monday of the month.

Results are communicated to the public by ASAP on the Adopt-A-Stream database http://www.georgiaadoptastream.com/db/Groups.html?GroupID=1906

They are also available on the Satilla Riverkeeper Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Satilla.Riverkeeper

Georgia’s criterion for acceptable levels of fecal coliform in water bodies that are used for human recreation is:: 200 (freshwater) & 100 (coastal) cfu/100mL based on a 30-day geometric mean

The EPA E. coli standards for human recreation are 126 cfu E.coli /100 ml based on a geometric mean or a one-time measurement equal to or less than 235 cfu/100 ml
(Note: EPA BAV: 235 E. coli/100 mL)

A swim is marked GREEN when it meets the EPA’s recommended limit of E. coli for recreational waters, which is equal to or less than 126 cfu/100 ml (colony forming units per 100 milliliters of water) based on a geometric mean or a one-time measurement equal to or less than 235 cfu/100 ml.

A beach is marked RED when results are equal to or exceed 126 cfu E.coli /100 ml based on a geometric mean or a one-time measurement equal to or more than 235 cfu/100 ml.

A beach is marked GREY when reliable information is not available
