National Water Trails System

The Department of the Interior announced today the creation of the National Water Trails System. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar signed a Secretarial Order that creates national water trails as part of the national recreational trails under the National Trails System Act of 1968. The Chattahoochee River Water Trail in Georgia will be the first river to receive this new designation.

“The Chattahoochee River Water Trail provides clean water, greenspace, and river access for millions of Americans every year,” Salazar said. “As our nation opens a new chapter on rivers - one where we value our waterways for their recreational, economic and ecological importance - it is fitting that the Chattahoochee River Water Trail leads the way.”
