The water on Lofton Creek is often referred to as black water, tea, or coffee – as are most fresh water creeks and rivers located in South Georgia and Florida. Blackwater occurs when tannic acid from decaying plants is released into the water. The result is water with a “mirrored” appearance, which reflects the scenery, and enhances the already-natural beauty of the streams.
