Yates and Thurlow Reservoirs are located in east central Alabama about 30 miles northeast of Montgomery. These are small reservoirs, relative to other Alabama Power Company impoundments. Yates Reservoir covers 1,980-acres and is located immediately downstream from the much larger Lake Martin. Just downstream from Yates Reservoir is the 585-acre Thurlow Reservoir. Below Thurlow Dam, the Tallapoosa River is free flowing to its confluence with the Coosa River to form the Alabama River.
