TVA Releases Boone Dam Water To Maintain Lake Level…Despite Ongoing Repairs
Ongoing repairs at Boone Dam have lowered lake levels the past few years, but recent heavy rains have forced TVA officials to drain off some of the water to maintain proper levels at the Tri Cities lake. The TVA recently used the dam’s low level sluice gate to release the water. The sluice gate was used while two generating units were being fixed. The dam is being repaired due to a water leak under the structure.
