The cool, crisp water of Little River is calling to locals and visitors alike, as summer quickly approaches. This pristine resource is a fascinating and unique experience in our little northeast corner of Alabama. Because of the geologic makeup of Lookout Mountain, water perches on a layer of shale, creating incredible rock bottom pools that are deep and cold.
In 2014, Travel and Leisure magazine listed Little River #1 out of 20 swimming holes in the nation. Since then, Eco-Tourism has exploded and is the #1 industry in DeKalb County, making Little River the lifeblood of our community.
With the swim season upon us, Little River Waterkeeper will keep you up-to-date on weekly water quality results. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we will run tests from samples taken on Little River from your favorite swimming holes.
Each Friday, we will post test results by the end of business for: E Coli, Total Coli form, Temperature, pH, Total Dissolved Solids and Conductivity to determine if the site meets state water quality standards.
