Title: Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Website

URL: http://www.tenntom.org/

Description: The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway is a connecting link between established water transportation routes that serve shippers and producers in the South and the Midwest as well as deep water ports along the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This unique feature has already benefited commercial interests in 18 states since it opened for business in 1985. The 234 - mile waterway begins at its northern end at Pickwick Lake on the Tennessee River, flows through northeast Mississippi and west Alabama, and connects with the established Warrior-Tombigbee navigation system at Demopolis, Alabama. From there, commerce travels northward as far as Port Birmingham, Alabama or south to Mobile, Alabama, and other destinations along the Gulf coast. The main features of Tenn-Tom are 10 locks and dams and a 29-mile man-made canal, one of the largest earth moving projects in history. The 10 locks raise or lower barges and boats a total of 341 feet, the difference in elevation between the two ends of the waterway. There are some 40 recreation areas that provide easy access to nearly 44,000 acres of water - related sports and other activities. In addition, marinas are located along the Tenn-Tom and connecting waterways to meet the needs of local as well as transient boaters. Over 110,000 acres of land were acquired for the construction and operation of the project. Some of these lands are available for public hunting. Also, another 88,000 acres, mostly bottomland hardwoods, have been purchased from voluntary sellers and managed by the two state conservation agencies for wildlife habitat. After 12 years of construction, the waterway opened to commercial traffic in January 1985. Seventeen public ports and terminals are strategically located within the waterway corridor to serve shippers' needs.
