Chattahoochee River Water-Safe for Irrigation?

Q: Is it safe to use water from the Chattahoochee River to irrigate a vegetable garden?

A: Many years ago, the Chattahoochee was not the cleanest river in the region. Folks were warned about eating fish caught there. Now the river has been cleaned up and there are minimal guidelines about eating its fish. I guess if it’s safe to eat the fish then it is safe to use the water on your vegetables.
