Wetumpka

Wetumpka, Alabama

The Coosa River flowing through Wetumpka is one of the most beautiful stretches of river in the entire state! It is also the most paddled piece of river in Alabama. Coosa Outdoor Center (334-201-5510) and Coosa River Adventures (334-514-0279) rent kayaks and shuttle paddlers for a great 7-mile float. In downtown Wetumpka there are two boat ramps (one is Gold Star Park and the other directly across the river), picnic areas, gazebo, riverwalk paved path, playground, Elmore County Museum, two historic log cabins, a stage for performances, and several rustic bridges and walk ways. Christmas on the Coosa and Riverfest are held annually at Gold Star Park. This is a bucket list paddle trip for anyone in Alabama! Get out there and do it!

SOURCE INFORMATION

Coosa Riverkeeper staff, interns, and volunteers monitor water quality at sites in this region. Sampling season starts in May and ends Labor Day Weekend.

Water at all sites is sampled for E. coli, total coliform, pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, total dissolved solids and conductivity. More in-depth data is viewable at www.CoosaRiver.org/SwimGuide

Coosa Riverkeeper utilizes the standardized state and federal criteria of 235 col/100 ml for collecting and analyzing water samples. Test results are expressed as Most Probable Number (MPN) of E.coli cfu (colony forming units) per 100 ml.

Water samples are collected every Thursday. Results are posted as soon as lab results are available on Friday (typically around noon CT). Results here on Swim Guide indicate E. coli concentrations, further data reporting on other water quality characteristics are published at coosariver.org/swimguide

A beach is marked Green when single sample results are under 126 E.coli / 100 ML water.

A beach is marked Red when the results are equal to or above 126 E.coli / 100 ML water.

A beach is marked Grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.
