Corps Dams on the Chattahoochee River
The Chattahoochee River starts in the mountains of north Georgia, and is unfortunate enough to flow through Atlanta, where it is heavily polluted. It is a major contributor to the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint, or ACF, River system, now a major source of controversy between the states of Georgia (who wants to suck it dry to maintain the uncontrolled development of metro Atlanta), Alabama and Florida (who both say "Hey, leave some for us!"). The Chattahoochee joins the Flint at Lake Seminole, behind the Jim Woodruff Dam (one of two power producing dams in Florida), to become the Apalachicola River. The Apalachicola River flows into Apalachicola Bay on the Gulf of Mexico, roughly half way between Panama City and Tallahassee, Florida.
The Corps and Georgia Power have several dams on the "'hooch". The Corps dams:
Buford Dam
(impounding Lake Lanier)
West Point Dam
Walter F. George Lock & Dam
George W. Andrews Lock & Dam
Jim Woodruff Lock & Dam
