Tug Boat at Hell Gate, Chatham County

Hell Gate is a shortcut channel near the confluence of the Big Ogeechee River and Little Ogeechee River that was cut by the Army Corps of Engineers to accommodate the convenient movement of vessels in the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. At low tide, the channel is dangerously low and even experienced boaters can have problems navigating if not careful.

    I believe funds have finally been approved to deepen the channel.
