Reservoir Information by Phone

For the latest information on reservoir elevations and streamflows, call TVA’s Reservoir Information Line from a touch-tone phone:

  • From Knoxville, TN: 865-632-2264
  • From Chattanooga, TN: 423-751-2264
  • From Muscle Shoals, AL: 256-386-2264
  • From all other locations: 800-238-2264 (toll-free)

Press 1 for information about a reservoir’s current elevation.

Press 2 for information about a reservoir’s predicted elevation.

Press 4 for information about a reservoir’s water-release schedule (predicted discharges).

Press 5 for information about observed discharges for the previous eight hours.

Then enter the two-digit code for the reservoir in which you are interested (see list at right).

Press 3 for information about flows of water in unregulated streams; then listen for the gauge reading that interests you.

Please note: 

  • You may go directly to the information you want without listening to all the instructions. For example, if you want the Norris water-release schedule, press 4 as soon as you hear “Welcome.” Then, after a slight pause, press 17 for Norris.
  • Not all information is available for all reservoirs.
  • You may press the * key to return to the main menu or the 9 key to exit from the system without hearing the entire report.

Information about reservoir elevations, water releases, and stream flows also is available here. To check reservoir information from your cell phone or other mobile device, go to http://m.tva.com.
