TO recognize the fiftieth Anniversary of the Chattooga River officially becoming a Wild and Scenic River.


Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate are pleased to recognize Chattooga River as it celebrates this important milestone; and


Whereas, Congress designated the Chattooga River a wild and scenic river on May 10, 1974. This designation requires the river and the one-quarter mile boundary on each side to remain natural and undeveloped forever; and


Whereas, famous for its rapids, the Chattooga River takes its name from "Tsa-tu-gi," the name of an old Cherokee village on the river. The river flows through North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia and is recognized as one of the Southeast's premier whitewater rivers; and


Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate greatly appreciate the dedication and commitment of the American River Society, the River Management Society, the United States Forest Service, and the South Carolina department of Natural Resources for their conservation work that protects and advocates for our nation's waterways, including those in the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests.  Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate:


That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize the fiftieth anniversary of the Chattooga River officially becoming a wild and scenic river.
