Ecological Threats

 South River, not unlike most urban rivers, is faced with a variety of environmental threats among them point-source pollution, non-point source pollution, stormwater runoff, sedimentation, and water withdrawal.  The impact of any one of these threats is serious. The impact of all five threats at once can be devastating and highlights how important it is for municipalities namely DeKalb County and City of Atlanta, environmental regulators namely U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Georgia Environmental Protection Division, business, citizens and other stakeholders to be proactive about addressing these threats.
