At low water levels, all the water in the Alapaha River sinks into a cave system. The cave is developed in the Oligocene age Suwannee Limestone. There is no dry passage. To the best of my knowledge, the water is not seen again until it reaches the Alapaha Rise Spring on the north side of the Suwannee River about twenty miles away. That spring is a large tannin spring. For more information: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alapaha_River
