The Walter Bouldin Lock will be the first navigation lock proposed for development of navigation of the Coosa River Waterway. The lock will be located in the left overbank area of Walter Bouldin Dam. The model investigation was concerned with navigation conditions in the reach, including the Jordan Reservoir, and the Walter Bouldin tailrace. Three fixed models were constructed to an undistorted scale of 1:100 to study navigation conditions at three locations in the reach where navigation difficulties were anticipated. Results of the investigation indicated that navigation conditions in the reach including the Jordan Reservoir, the diversion canal, Bouldin Reservoir, and Bouldin tailrace to below its confluence with the Alabama River will depend on many interrelated factors that could adversely affect the safe and efficient movement of tows.
