Most of East Tennessee's rivers and lakes have reached ideal summer levels, even after a dry spring.
TVA says the Cherokee and Norris Lake reservoirs are the only ones still below average levels.
Norris is down slightly by about one foot, while Cherokee is about two feet under typical summer levels.
TVA says some boaters on Cherokee may need to keep a closer eye out for shallow stretches, but TVA says most people likely won't notice a difference, despite lower rainfall.
"We had very good runoff in January and February. The spigot kind of got turned off after that. Middle of March on, we have been well below normal rainfall and runoff," said Tom Barnett, TVA manager of river forecast center operations.
The drier weather has also impacted power generation. TVA says hydroelectricity generation is down about 20 percent from normal levels.
