It’s lake season – the time of year to get out and enjoy the great outdoors by visiting one of Alabama’s extraordinary lakes. It’s the perfect time to take in the beauty of the state’s miles of gorgeous shoreline and acres of sparkling water.
Did you know that Alabama has more fresh water flowing through it than any other state in the continental U.S.?
Alabama Power operates 11 company lakes and 14 hydroelectric projects. Company lakes and dams impound more than 157,000 acres of water and provide more than 3,500 miles of shoreline for the use and enjoyment of the public. The company also maintains 68 recreation sites and about 21 miles of hiking and walking trails that are open for the public to enjoy year-round.
