The sight of water spilling over Norris Dam got even more spectacular on Tuesday.

Last week, TVA began spilling water over the top of the dam, to try to lower the levels of Norris Lake, which is about 5 feet above where it should be this time of year.

Now, TVA has also opened the sluice gates of the dam, ejecting water out of the sides and bottom of the dam, in addition to the 15,000 gallons a second that's pouring over the top.

The last time TVA spilled water at Norris Dam was in 2011, and it is expected to continue into May.
