The information below is published by the TVA on their web site, http://www.tva.gov. The lake levels continue to drop, with the lake reaching the summer pool elevation some time tomorrow. The current conditions on the lake are somewhat hazardous as debris continues to float down river. Use caution if you are going out on the lake. Some of the debris is floating just under the surface and can do significant damage to the running gear. Be careful out there!
