Fowl River Watershed

In 2014, Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood (GMC) was contracted by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (MBNEP) through its Project Implementation Committee (PIC), to conduct a comprehensive Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for the Fowl River Watershed located in Mobile County, Alabama. The watershed is identified by the hydrologic unit code (HUC) 031602050206 and encompasses approximately 39,769 acres within southern Mobile County. The headwaters of Fowl River begin near Theodore, Alabama and flow south to Bellingrath Gardens where the split between East Fowl River and West Fowl River occurs. East Fowl River flows northeast directly into Mobile Bay, and West Fowl River flows south into Mississippi Sound.
