West Fowl River

The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (MBNEP) received funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (GBEF) to develop watershed management plans (WMP) for several intertidal watersheds along the Alabama coast. The West Fowl River Watershed was identified as one of the priority watersheds and the MBNEP partnered with the Mobile County Soil and Water Conservation District to develop the West Fowl River Watershed Management Plan. The goal of the plan is to provide a roadmap for restoring and conserving the watershed and improving water and habitat quality in areas where resources could have been damaged by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. This WMP charts a conceptual course for improving and protecting the things people value most about living along the Alabama coast. This WMP was completed in 2019 and is available to view or download by clicking the links below under Final Plan.
