The Tennessee Valley Authority will temporarily lower the water level of Melton Hill Reservoir from Friday, February 17, through Monday, March 6, to allow property owners to repair docks, stabilize the shoreline, and pick up litter.
The reservoir’s water level will be held between 790 and 792 feet above sea level—approximately two to four feet below its current level – during this period. Melton Hill will be returned to its normal winter elevation of 794 feet beginning on March 7, a press release said.
Information on the river system and specific reservoirs is available on TVA’s website at http://www.tva.com/Environment/Lake-Levels and on TVA’s free app for the iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Links to download the apps are available on the Lake Level webpage.
