Georgia's Railroad History & Heritage. © Steve StoreyPublicAlapaha RiverYes"The Hawkinsville and Florida Southern Railway (H&FS) was founded in 1896 and by 1901 was operating 43 miles (69 km) of track from Hawkinsville to Worth, Georgia, USA, where it connected with the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad.[1] It also operated a 15-mile (24 km) line between Davisville and Fitzgerald, Georgia. In 1907, a portion of the H&FS was leased to the Gulf Line Railway However, in 1913, the H&FS took over operations and fully absorbed the Gulf Line resulting in a line from Hawkinsville to Camilla, Georgia. In 1922, the H&FS went bankrupt. The section from Camilla to Ashburn, Georgia, was purchased by the Georgia, Ashburn, Sylvester and Camilla Railway but no buyers could be found for the remainder of the system and it was abandoned by 1923."GABen Hill, Turner

If a pipeline is punctured, the HVLs will escape and convert from a liquid to a gas. HVLs are heavier than air; therefore, if they escape from the pipeline, they will likely pool in low-lying areas. HVLs are highly flammable and will burn or explode if exposed to an ignition source. HVLs are dangerous and could be lethal if inhaled by humans or animals. http://www.enterpriseproducts.com/pipeline-safety/pipeline-viewerGATift, IrwinDixie Pipeline Company LLC, owned by Enterprise Products Partners, L.P.,

Built 1911; Condemned 1970. Ken Sulak notes it is named: "after George Washington Beatty, a wealthy Georgia cotton planter. It was built on his land, originally in old Irwin County, GA, by the Roanoke Bridge Co. for $2,200. It is the oldest Pony Truss iron bridge still standing in Florida (only 2 survive). It was condemned and abandoned in 1970. Preceding the bridge in the mid to late 1800s, John Knight operated a ferry nearby, connecting Miccotown with Bellville to the west, and the Roebuck Bridge over the Alapaha to the east."https://wwals.net/wp-content/themes/pianoblack/img//2015/01/cb8a6b5089af4cb840db1505cbd874dc.jpghttps://wwals.net/wp-content/themes/pianoblack/img//2015/01/9e8e29a10b8697bf506026436d18e3d3.jpghttps://wwals.net/2015/01/04/old-bridge-alapahoochee-river/Chris MericlePublicAlapahoochee RiverNoNoNoNoNoNoYesNoNoNoNoNoFLHamilton3868-005 SHAFFNER WILLIAM BRADLEYhttps://qpublic6.qpublic.net/fl_display_dw.php?county=fl_hamilton&KEY=3868-005

Purpose of this spreadsheet

This spreadsheet has three main purposes:

  1. WWALS uses it for maps of the Alapaha River Water Trail.
  2. Data for use by local governments, county, city, and other interested parties such as chambers of commerce, tourism councils, etc.
  3. For GA-EPD to use to produce an interactive google map.
  4. For drawing detail maps by SRWMD and others.
  5. For WWALS to keep track of ART data for its own uses, such as brochures, guides, kiosks, cards, etc.

WWALS Water Trails Committee members are finding and filling in data for each of these categories.

Current categories include: Acess/Landing, Outfitter, Camping/Lodging, Bridge, Waterfall, Spring, Rapid/Shoal, Hiking Trail (Trail Head), Tributary, River Gauge, Water Discharge, Obstacle, Point of Interest. GRN River Trail coordinator Gwyneth Moody says she will check with GA-EPD about adding a category for Lakes. WWALS has already added in the WWALS working spreadsheet categories for:

  • Lake
  • Sinkhole
  • Landing (for a constructed boat ramp or canoe launch)
  • Access (for unimproved access)
  • Railbridge (separate from Bridge, which we use for road bridge)
  • ARWT Sponsor
  • Logo contest sponsor

These additional categories get translated back to GRN’s categories before updating the GRN spreadsheet.

For more detail, see the Interactive Water Trail Map Data Submission Protocol, which actually asks for a Sections Spreadsheet and a Sites Spreadsheet.

For each item the sites spreadsheet needs:

  • CATEGORY
  • NAME
  • LATITUDE
  • LONGITUDE
  • ADDRESS (physical)
  • WEBSITE (URL)/ INFORMATION SOURCE/ REFERENCE
  • DESCRIPTION
  • PHOTO (Make sure to save photo as jpg and upload to dropbox folder)
  • PHOTO SOURCE
  • PHONE NUMBER
  • OWNERSHIP (Public or Private)
  • WATER BODY
  • CANOE/KAYAK RENTAL (Yes or No)
  • ACCESS (to river)
  • CAMPING (No or RV Campsites, and/or Primitive Campsites)
  • FOOD (No or Snack Machine, Restaurant, Convenient Store etc.)
  • WATER (Yes or No)
  • RESTROOMS (No or Portalet, Flush Toilet, or Vault Toilet)
  • HISTORIC ATTRACTION
  • TYPE OF BOAT RAMP/ LAUNCH/ STAIRS
    • Ramp: Dirt, Gravel or Concrete;
    • Launch: Native/Soil Rock, Floating, Pipe, Pile, or Cantilever [Boat Lift];
    • Stairs: Dirt, Metal, Timber, Stone, or Concrete
  • DOCK (Yes or No),
  • PARKING/ DAY USE FEE (No or Parking Fee $X or Day Use Fee $X),
  • SHELTER (Yes or No),
  • PICNIC AREA (Yes or No),
  • FISH BAIT (Yes or No),
  • GASOLINE (Yes or No),
  • Handicapped Accessible,
  • OTHER,

Plus some additional fields added by WWALS:

  • MILE
    upstream from the confluence
  • LAYER determines which google map layer:
    • Brochure
    • * means a layer with the same name as the Category for the row
    • any other name can also be use for a layer
    • a row with no name goes into a layer called Other
  • FOOTNOTE,
  • SMALL PHOTO,
  • Lowest boatable,
  • Highest safe,
  • TODO,
  • State,
  • County,
  • Parcel,
  • Owner,
  • Parcel link,
  • Comprehensive Plan,
  • Plan quotes

The example Ocmulgee River Water Trail spreadsheet GRN sent only has 141 items, so it wasn’t too hard to construct a spreadsheet for the Alapaha River Water Trail, currently at 75 items (2014-03-05) 126 items (2014-04-24) 191 items (2017-08-27).

GRN Spreadsheet

We are also making the spreadsheet information available in the online location requested by GRN. Since we keep quite a bit more information in our spreadsheet, such as mile markers, boatable low and safe high water levels, and tax assessor parcel numbers, we remove and remap a number of fields with a program before inserting into the GRN spreadsheet. This GRN version is not as current as the WWALS ARWT spreadsheet.
