This book chapter sets forth a succinct but comprehensive review of Alabama Water Law, including a brief exploration of water pollution and habitat degradation in Alabama. The chapter concludes with a rather thorough discussion of the “water war” between Georgia, Florida, and Alabama over the waters of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River basin and the dispute between Georgia and Alabama over the waters of the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa (ACT) River system.
