Georgia Southern officials charged with studying the river in the wake of the massive 2011 fish kill offered an update on their study Tuesday evening.
About halfway through a three-year project studying the Ogeechee River, Georgia Southern University researchers and their partners offered an update on their progress during a public forum Tuesday evening at the university. The project still has a lot of work to be done, and researchers did not divulge any information about current river conditions except that the drought is over, with more than 45 inches of rainfall in the area since January. “At this point, we don’t have a lot of concrete conclusions or trending information,” said Dr. Jeffrey Underwood, chairman of GSU’s Department of Geology and Geography.
