The Eagle and Phenix Dam is a dam on the Chattahoochee River, in downtown Columbus, Georgia. The dam was built in 1882 to power the defunct Eagle and Phenix textile Mill. It is located just south of the 13th Street Bridge which connects Columbus to Phenix City, Alabama. The dam produces a 45-acre (18 ha) run of the river reservoir that extends approximately 1-mile (1.6 km) upstream.
The Eagle and Phenix Dam is now owned by the City of Columbus. The dam was breached during March 2012 in order to restore natural flowing conditions. This was to create an urban whitewater park along the river.
