MORE WATER IN OUR LAKES !

UP COMES THE WATER…

It is that time of the year. Tennessee Valley Authority [TVA] has begun to raise the level of our area lakes.

Most, if not all of our 7 lakes, will be near full summer pool by Mid-May.

In checking Norris last week-end, about another ten feet and it will be at full pool. Cherokee and Douglas are the other two reserve lakes. They are projected to be a summer pool by early May.

As of the first of April, Fort Loudoun is about 4 feet below summer pool but scheduled to rise rapidly. All the main stream lakes are projected to be at summer pool by Mid-May.

Come enjoy our lakes…
