Georgia's Flint River has been named one of the country's 10 most endangered waterways because of a proposed dam project and outdated water management, according to an environmental advocacy group.

American Rivers, a conservation group, compiled the annual list.

The organization chooses its most endangered rivers from nominations made by environmental groups and considers the value of each river to people and the environment, the level of the threat it faces and pending decisions that could affect it in the next year.

California's San Joaquin River was the country's most endangered waterways.
