I stand corrected. Iíll be honest and say I donít know that much about the history of the Clinch, but after reading Mike Boneís blog entry this morning, it was an eye opener. Hereís the link: Weíve had a wet winter this year, and last year as well. I figured that was the main culprit behind the spilling. Apparently, the target winter pool that TVA attempts to maintain has a larger role than I realized. In the past TVA maintained a winter pool of 980, now the mark is 1000 feet. Iím an engineer, so I can dig numbers. 20 feet multiplied by the surface area of Norris Lake is a huge volumeÖ wonder theyíre spilling more often. Anyway, take a look at Mikeís blog, he gives a much more detailed account and itís well worth a look.
