View Full Version : Reading TVA Generation Tables

I may just be a little slow this morning but can someone explain the predicted generation schedule for the Watauga this morning.

I plan on fishing the Watauga Sunday morning but won't be around a computer Saturday or Sunday to look at the schedule. Any help would be appreciated.


Date Daily Average Inflow Midnight Elevation Daily Average Outflow

9/18/2009 300 1,952.30 300
9/19/2009 200 1,952.20 400
9/20/2009 200 1,952.30 100

GM, I may be confused by your question, but I believe that you are looking at the Watauga Dam generation schedule and you need to look at the Wilbur Dam schedule for the Watauga River. They do not give a predicted flow for Wilbur Dam and it could be different from the Watauga Dam release. You will have to wait until this evening to see the flow for tomorrow for Wilbur.

Thanks Hugh. See, I was a little slow. O.k. I guess I will just have to play it by ear this weekend while I am up in the area. I'll have my phone on me so I can call the TVA number while I'm on the road.
