Significance: The Augusta power and navigation canal was projected in order to make Augusta a manufacturing center. By the 1880's, the canal was a success. It supplied water power for eight textile mills, three of which still operate hydroelectric plants. The canal has further significance in that its waters power the city's water pumping station. In addition, original canal structures, such as the headgates and locks and the Rae's Creek aqueduct, still stand intact.
