Shoulder seasons, spring and fall, are outage time for TVA. During times of decreased need for power, generators and turbines get rebuilt. Downstream needs at nuclear and steam plants may affect flow needs from upstram dams. Reservoirs with too little capacity downstream will call for low flows from upstream dams. If there is a major rebuild of a unit at Norris Dam we could see one generator until time to fill Norris Lake. Don't know if any of this is the issue at Norris. Could see sulfurs on the Clinch before tax day.
