Alabama Power to host Warrior River-Smith Development information meeting

Justin Averette

Alabama Power is preparing to begin the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission process to update its Shoreline Management Plan for the Warrior River Project-Smith Development (FERC No. 2165).

This process involves an evaluation of the current Shoreline Management Plan to ensure shoreline development is consistent with the protection and enhancement of environmental, scenic, cultural and recreational values, while ensuring the continued safe and reliable production of hydroelectric power.

On May 9, Alabama Power will host a Warrior River–Smith Development information meeting at Traders and Farmers Bank (5329 Curry Highway, Jasper, AL 35503), from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the current Shoreline Management Plan and permitting program and to gain feedback regarding any modifications. Stakeholders can also visit with Shoreline Management and various informational booths.

This meeting is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided. If you plan to attend, please call Pamela Aaron at 205-384-7308 before April 15.
