Waterways


The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway connects the Tennessee River to the Tombigbee River in Demopolis, before flowing south to the Gulf of Mexico. The proposed commercial port facilities would be located on the Black Warrior River, a short distance from where it connects to the Tombigbee River just south of the Tombigbee.
