Latest Operating Information

Please note! Water release schedules often change without notice due to unanticipated changes in weather conditions and power system requirements.

Use caution near dams. A large amount of water may be discharged without warning at any time. Your safety depends on obeying all posted safety regulations and warnings. Learn more.

Special Alert

TVA will continue to lower Boone Lake below its normal winter elevation to help engineers determine the cause of water and sediment seeping from the riverbank below the dam.

The safety of our employees and the public is TVA’s top priority. The dam is structurally sound, and we are continuously monitoring the dam to ensure it is safe.

Dock and marina owners should prepare for lower-than-normal water levels. The duration of the extended drawdown will depend on the results of the ongoing analysis.
