TVA operates the dams, locks, and reservoirs of the Tennessee River and its tributaries as one integrated system in order to provide multiple benefits for the region. These benefits include year-round navigation, flood damage reduction, affordable electricity, improved water quality and water supply, recreation, and economic growth.

TVA’s policy for operating the Tennessee River system affects how much reservoir levels rise and fall, when those changes occur, and the amount of water flowing through the system at different times of the year, depending on rainfall.

Tennessee Valley Authority operates many beautiful lakes which provide recreational opportunities for the public, including boating, fishing, picnicking, and parks.
