We Create Lakes that Create Opportunities
The Alabama, Coosa, and Tallapoosa rivers—and the improvements added to the channel over the years—provide an economic boon to their communities and to the state as a whole.
For example, dams along these waterways contribute immensely to our shared economy through hydroelectric power generation. The reservoirs created by these dams also generate quite a bit of returns. The lakes attract boaters, skiers, and fishers of bass and crappie. Local, state, regional, and national fishing tournaments reel in revenue and valuable exposure.
