What exactly is the CSRA?

For people that do not live in this area, they may often hear locals using the term “CSRA” often. For those that do not know and may have always wondered what the CSRA actually is, we would like to help clear up any questions you may have. We found this handy explanation on Wikipedia:

The Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) includes 13-counties region in the U.S. state of Georgia and five counties in South Carolina. The term was coined in 1950 by C.C. McCollum, the winner of a $250 contest held by The Augusta Chronicle to generate the best name for the area. Today the acronym is so commonly used that the full name is not known to all residents. The region is located on and named after the Savannah River, which forms the border between the two states. The largest cities within the CSRA are Augusta, Georgia and Aiken, South Carolina.

As of the 2010 American Community Survey from the U.S. Census Bureau, the CSRA had a total population of 709,433, and the six-county Augusta-Richmond County Metropolitan Statistical Area (at the center of the CSRA) had a population of 543,738., making it the second largest in the State of Georgia.
