We are also making sure that the U.
Army Corps of Engineers does its part to operate crucial reservoirs in Georgia in a way that ensures healthy stream flows. On the Coosa River in Alabama, we are participating in the relicensing process for seven Alabama Power dams to make sure that they maintain healthy water quality for recreation and aquatic life.
Alabama remains the only state involved in the tri-state water wars without a comprehensive water plan, putting the state at a severe disadvantage when competing with its neighbors for water without a plan to balance competing water needs within its own borders. SELC played a prominent role in the AWAWG stakeholder panels, using the opportunity to weigh in on policy issues and help develop potential legislation. Governor Kay Ivey disbanded the AWAWG in and reassigned the responsibility of developing a plan back to the Alabama Office of Water Resources and the Alabama Water Resources Commission, with instructions to review the report and develop a roadmap that includes recommendations on next steps, proposed timelines, and estimated funding needs to produce a water management plan.
SELC and Alabama Rivers Alliance continue to advocate for a water plan that emphasizes conservation and efficiency and establishes flow standards to maintain healthy waterways, and urge Alabama residents to make their voices heard in support of a plan by visiting AlabamaWaterPlan.
