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. I’m an engineer, so I can dig numbers. 20 feet multiplied by the surface area of Norris Lake is a huge volume… wonder they’re spilling more often. Anyway, take a look at Mike’s blog, he gives a much more detailed account and it’s well worth a look.
Is that not what I said?
