Environment

Although the Augusta Canal is man-made, many areas along its banks have returned to a more natural state.
The canal occupies a unique ecosystem created along the granite ledges that separate the Piedmont plateau
from the Coastal plain –an area known as The Fall Line. The undeveloped land between the canal
and the Savannah River rapids along the upper First Level has formed a wetland,
creating an urban wildlife refuge that is home to varied flora and fauna,
including several rare and endangered species.

Also...it is against the law to swim in the Augusta Canal.  Only electric boats or canoes can operate on the canal and no new housing can be built on the canal.  

The boat we were on is the longest electric boat in the United States.  It is charged by the electricity generated by the canal.
