Alcovy River


The Alcovy River originates in Gwinnett County, near Lawrenceville, Georgia. It flows south, eventually emptying into the northern end of Lake Jackson along the Jasper/Newton County border. The Yellow River and South River also empty into Lake Jackson, converging to form the Ocmulgee River, which then flows south and east to converge with the Oconee River to form the Altamaha River, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
