Drawdown for Dam Maintenance
Starting mid-December, TVA will lower Boone Reservoir around 14 feet below normal winter levels.
Boone Reservoir is managed for a number of purposes, including power production, flood damage reduction, water supply, water quality, and aquatic ecology.
The reservoir features a swimming area above the dam and a boat ramp with a courtesy pier for safe, convenient boat launching and retrieval. Water skiing and fishing are popular pastimes at Boone.
