TVA has announced it will temporarily lower the water level of the Melton Hill Reservoir from Sunday, March 24, through Sunday, April 7, to allow property owners to repair docks, stabilize shoreline and pick up litter.
During this period, TVA says, the reservoir’s water level will be held between 790 and 792 feet above sea level – about two to four feet below its current level. The exact drawdown rate will depend on weather conditions, and may vary with rainfall amounts. Melton Hill will be restored to its normal winter elevation of 794 feet by April 7.
TVA said, “The drawdown targets and dates are subject to change due to weather constraints. Recent heavy rains could result in greater than usual debris and erosion in some areas.”
