Over six (6) and a half miles of Colonial Heights are bordered by the Appomattox River. Thousands of property values depend upon the river’s course. It is the primary source of the City’s drinking water, and it provides food and recreation for many of the City’s residents. In fact, you’re likely visiting this page because of your interest in one of the many forms of recreation the river provides.
Unfortunately, the Appomattox River is significantly less healthy than we’d like it to be. Visit the City’s Stormwater Management webpage to learn more, and to find out how you can help protect one of the City’s best natural resources.
