Knoxville (WVLT) What you don't know about the water levels on area waterways could hurt you, or cost you money.
Lower water levels are revealing a lot more hazards on lakes, streams and rivers.
An exposed sandbar, log, or even a rock or other obstruction just below the water level can damage your propeller or cause an accident.
TVA reminds you to keep it slow, even if you are familiar with the area you are boating in.
A dry spring has revealed new dangers.
A few important reminders from t-v-a, never drink and drive, even on a boat, wear your life jacket, and keep your eye on the water for hazards, other boats, or jetskis.
Much more on how much one mistake can cost you or your boat, tonight at 5:30.
