Shoreline Management

Protecting and Enhancing Lakes

As part of operating 14 dams and the 11 lakes they create, Alabama Power manages more than 3,500 miles of shoreline and nearly 120,000 acres of land. To do this, 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. They also help maintain the company’s ability to manage flood conditions on each river system by enforcing easement and construction standards specific to each lake.
