South River and South Fork Shenandoah River Map

The South River Science Team has been working since its inception to ensure that the public is aware of the fish consumption advisory in the South River and South Fork Shenandoah River. Most recently, the team has installed outdoor billboards to post the English and Spanish Department of Health fish consumption advisory signs and other South River information. The billboards are located in areas where people gather before fishing, such as Constitution Park and Basic Park in Waynesboro, Grottoes Town Park, Grand Caverns, and Crimora Park.
