Up-to-Date Information on the
Tennessee River System

The Tennessee Valley Authority manages an integrated, technically elegant system of dams, locks, and reservoirs in the Tennessee River watershed. This system is carefully balanced to facilitate navigation, control flooding, and produce hydropower to benefit all people in the Valley.

TVA makes this happen by carefully planning the retention and release of water from its dams. This site tracks water levels as they rise and fall in reservoirs across the Valley.

Observed water levels in the reservoirs are updated periodically throughout the day.

Predicted water levels are updated at least once a day, by 1 p.m. Eastern time. That information may be updated more frequently when the amount of water flowing through the system is large. Predicted levels are given for midnight of the same day and the two days following.

This site offers predicted daily average rates of water flowing into and being discharged from reservoirs. Predicted flow rates are given for the same day and the two days following. The site also tracks the flow of water in selected Valley streams, as well as precipitation across the Valley.

The water release schedule is subject to change without notice.
Times are given in local time.
Please use caution near dams.


Hazardous conditions may develop without warning.
