OUR LAKES

Weiss Lake

From its headwaters in Georgia and Tennessee the Coosa flows to Alabama where a series of impoundments cover the magnificent shoals that so famously dominated the Coosa in the steamboat era. Those impoundments created six large lakes, Weiss, Neely Henry, Logan Martin, Lay, Mitchell & Jordan, that are a major part of life on the Coosa and where tens of thousands of people live in lake homes, fish and swim.

Weiss Lake, the most upstream lake on the Coosa, was constructed in 1961. Weiss Lake is part of the Upper Coosa Basin (the Coosa Basin being divided into Upper, Middle and Lower sections). Coosa Riverkeeper maintains jurisdiction over the Middle and Lower Coosa Basins while our sister organization Upper Coosa Riverkeeper at Coosa River Basin Initiative maintains jurisdiction over the Upper Coosa Basin, including Weiss Lake. Therefore, we do not implement any of our programs or respond to citizen complaints on Weiss Lake. If you have questions about Weiss Lake or would like to file a pollution complaint in that area, please head over to the Coosa River Basin Initiative website.
