To address recreational and conservation issues on the Coosa River.

Specific Issues:

To promote and increase public access on the Coosa River for whitewater and fishing enthusiast.

The CRPC was founded in 1991 with one common goal of bringing back minimum and recreational flows to the Coosa River below Jordan Dam because from 1980-1991 Alabama Power Company had diverted almost all of the water from Jordan Dam and was releasing it through Bouldin Dam causing the river below Jordan Dam to Fort Toulouse to be nothing more than a stagnant pool from 1980-1991 except during times of flood.

The CRPC works to guarantee that the mandatory minimum, recreational, fisheries flows and releases are followed through as contained in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) order.

The CRPC host the Coosa River Whitewater Festival every year on the first weekend of June. Money raised from this event is used for various enhancements, access improvements and general environmental projects along the Coosa River.
