Alabama Power says it has evaluated the triggers in the Alabama Drought Response Operations Plan (ADROP), which continues to show a drought level 2 response; therefore, the flow into the Alabama River will remain at 4200 cfs. At this time, updates will be distributed after each ADROP run. ADROP is updated on the first and the third Tuesday of each month.
