TVA Drafting Policy About Tennessee River

Knoxville (WVLT) - The Tennessee Valley Authority knows a continuing drought will only increase pressure from communities outside the valley to tap into the Tennessee River.

Now the staff is working on a formal policy about the matter.

The agency has extended water intake lines for communities as lake levels have fallen.

The federal utility controls the 652 mile river and its tributaries through a series of dams.
