The Dams Sector delivers critical water retention and control services throughout Alabama and neighboring states, including hydroelectric power generation, municipal and industrial water supplies, agricultural irrigation, sediment and flood control, river navigation for inland bulk shipping, industrial waste management, and recreation.

Its key services support multiple critical infrastructure sectors and industries. Dams Sector assets irrigate farmland, help protect the State’s lowlands  from flooding, and generate about 10 percent of the State’s electricity.

We are actively recruiting experts and stakeholders in this sector to lead the Sector Security and Resiliency Program.  Please contact president@infragardbirmingham.org if you would like to be part of this initiative.
