Alabama Power Re-licensing of Weiss Lake
1. Have the Winter Pool changed from 558 msl to 561 msl
2. Maintain full summer pool of 564 msl held until October instead of September
3. Have Alabama Power build a floating dock at Cobia Landing for safety and boater convenience
4. Bring to the attention of Alabama Power the sedimentation issues in some areas of the lake.
We continue to monitor the re-licensing process as it goes through approval from the Corp of Engineers and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and remain involved to achieve these goals. For more information on the Re-licensing of Weiss Lake visit www.alabamapower.com
Safety Buoys and Channel Markers
Weiss Lake is overall a shallow lake which makes navigation at times challenging. The Alabama Marine Police and Weiss Lake Improvement Association work together to maintain and replace channel markers on Weiss Lake to provide safe navigation. With the direction of the Alabama Marine Police, Weiss Lake Improvement pays for marker poles, signs and installation of missing channel markers. We also report hazards to the Alabama Marine Police for consideration of hazard markers.
