Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River

Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River

The Locust Fork in Alabama, USA, is one of three major tributaries of the Black Warrior River, stretching over Blount, Etowah, and Marshall counties. The 158-mile-long (254 km)[1] river features several stretches of whitewater, and is popular with canoers and kayakers. In the late 1980s, the Birmingham Water Works proposed damming the river as a source of drinking water. The plan was controversial, and has been suspended.
