Smith Lake is the cleanest lake in Alabama! Last year Smith Lake was certified as the cleanest lake in AL in an annual report to Congress. How do we know? Water quality data entered in the Alabama Water Watch database of water test results (http://www.alabamawaterwatch.org/). Smith Lake has the highest number of volunteer testers of any location in Alabama – over 50 at last count! These volunteers check the water chemistry weekly and report to data to a central database. Data trends identify problems and show where action is needed. Volunteer groups develop action plans in conjunction with Smith Lake stakeholders, Check out Alabama Water Watch.
