The Weiss Lake project in northeastern Alabama is a cooperative project between the Alabama Department of Natural Resources (ADNR) and Alabama Power Company. The 30,200-acre lake straddles the border between Alabama and Georgia. ADNR asked Ducks Unlimited to provide technical advice in the planning stages. As ADNR moves forward with the project, they plan to contract with DU to perform the engineering design and construction management of the project. When agreements and permit approvals are in place, DU will begin the survey and design. Once complete, the project will provide additional waterfowl habitat and hunting opportunities in Alabama. The project is currently projected to be finished by the end of 2018.
