About the tombigbee river
The Tombigbee River is a major river in the southeastern United States. It flows for 419 miles from northeastern Mississippi to western Alabama, where it joins the Alabama River to form the Mobile River. The river is an important transportation route, with many locks and dams along its length. The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, a 234-mile long canal linking the Tombigbee River to the Tennessee River, was completed in 1985 and provides an important transportation route for barge traffic. The river is also used for irrigation and hydroelectric power generation, with several large reservoirs and dams along the river. These include the Aberdeen Lock and Dam, the Fulton Lock and Dam, and the Bevill Lock and Dam. The Tombigbee River is also a popular destination for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping.
