The proposed aquatic ecosystem restoration project consists of breaching the Eagle and Phenix Dam (450 foot breach width) and the City Mills Dam (350 foot breach width) to restore a total of approximately 2.3 miles of the Chattahoochee River to an unimpounded condition. The Eagle and Phenix Dam and the City Mills Dam are located in Muscogee County, Georgia, and Russell County, Alabama, on the Chattahoochee River in the cities of Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama. The proposed project reach on the Chattahoochee River extends from the tailwater area below the Eagle and Phenix Dam upstream to tailwater of the North Highlands Dam. This project is being developed under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 206 Environmental Restoration Program, by the Mobile District, along with the non-federal sponsor cities of Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama.
