Jordan Lake is located about 25 miles north of Montgomery, Alabama. This lake is a 6,800-acre reservoir on the Coosa River. It is the southernmost impoundment on the river, and the dam is located just north of Wetumpka. Impounded in 1928, the lake stretches for about 18 miles between the Mitchell and Jordan Dams. Average depth is 35 feet, but depths of up to 110 feet are located just above the dam.
The canal that connects Jordan Lake to Bouldin Lake was created when Walter Bouldin Dam failed in 1975 by a breach, creating one large reservoir between the two lakes. Bouldin Lake usually is not recognized as a current lake, as it is included in what is known as Lake Jordan today.
