Locust Fork River
The Locust Fork is a 158-mile long tributary of the Black Warrior River. It originates in Etowah County and drains central Blount County and norther Jefferson County. It is named for the black locust trees found along its banks.
The river's numerous stretches of white water have made it popular for recreation.
In the late 1980s the Birmingham Water Works Board proposed damming the Locust Fork to create a new reservoir. The controversial plan has not moved forward.
