The following survey is intended to help guide Augusta County staff in evaluating potential projects along South River which would provide public access for recreational activities such as fishing and boating. There is an established need for water access, whether it be for fishing or boating, based on both a public survey completed in 2015-16 by Augusta County Parks and Recreation and the 2018 Virginia Outdoors Plan Regional Recommendations for the Central Shenandoah region. The South River starts in Augusta County near the village of Greenville and flows for approximately 47 miles before entering Rockingham County in the town of Grottoes. Specific areas need to be identified for ideal public access so that County staff can focus efforts in a way that aligns with public interest. There are various funding programs currently available to improve recreational access to the South River. Data collected with this survey will assist staff in submitting proposals for these funding programs.
