Proposals withdrawn for Murder Creek and Little Choctawhatchee reservoirs

After years of opposition by SELC and our partners, localities in southern Alabama recently withdrew their proposals to build two enormously destructive reservoirs. One is the 2,650-acre Murder Creek project in Conecuh County, which would have inundated more than 1,400 acres of wetlands and some 19 miles of streams; the other is the 1,500-acre Little Choctawhatchee Reservoir, which endangered almost 17 miles of streams and 1,120 acres of bottomland hardwood swamps and other wetlands.
