Alabama Power recognizes the ecological importance of aquatic vegetation in company reservoirs. Aquatic vegetation will be managed for the optimization of all uses of reservoirs in compliance with local, state and federal laws and regulations. Aquatic plant control will be considered if vegetation:
- Creates a potential public health hazard by providing a mosquito-breeding habitat.
- Poses a threat to power generation facilities or water withdrawal structures.
- Restricts recreational utilization of a reservoir.
- Poses a threat to the ecological balance of the reservoir.
We utilize best management practices to control the spread of problematic plants.
If you think you see these plants on Alabama Power-managed reservoirs or have an issue with aquatic plants, please help us by submitting the form below or calling us at 205-257-2393.
