The Choctawhatchee, Pea and Yellow Rivers Watershed Management Authority has developed a comprehensive watershed management plan to consolidate, into one source,

  • the water-related natural resource issues in the Choctawhatchee, Pea and Yellow River Watershed,
  • available scientific knowledge and data, and
  • outline future water management options for the watershed.

The plan is available and is a great informational resource for the Water Industry. 

You may view the Plan in its entirety at cpyrwma.alabama.gov.

A map of the watersheds is available here.


The Choctawhatchee, Pea and Yellow Rivers Watershed Management Authority represents a wide and diverse area of land covering a major portion of the southeastern part of Alabama.

The Authority was created in 1991 by the Alabama Legislature for the purpose of  “developing and executing plans and programs relating to any phase of conservation of water, water usage, flood prevention, flood control, water pollution control, wildlife habitat protection, agricultural and timberland protection, erosion prevention, and control of erosion, floodwater and sediment damages.”
