In May 2004, the TVA Board approved a new operating policy for the Tennessee River and tributary system. The new policy shifts the focus of operations on TVA-managed reservoirs from achieving specific pool elevations to managing the flow of water through the system. It also addresses public comments about the importance of drawing water from tributary storage reservoirs equitably. Read about what this will mean for the operation of your reservoir.
