Shoreline Management

As part of operating 14 dams along the Coosa, Tallapoosa and Black Warrior rivers, Alabama Power manages more than 3,500 miles of shoreline and nearly 120,000 acres of land. Our team of shoreline managers works closely with communities surrounding the reservoirs to protect and enhance the scenic, recreational and environmental resources these lakes offer.

Alabama Power works to meet the needs of individual, industrial and organizational stakeholders by permitting shoreline structures and promoting best shoreline management practices.


Managing invasive plants

Plants add beauty and create beneficial habitat in lakes. But exotic plants can damage ecosystems, increase mosquito reproduction, impede boating and swimming and clog intakes at dams.

Shoreline managers help maintain the company’s ability to manage flood conditions on each river system by enforcing easement and construction standards specific to each lake.
