Due to continuing dry conditions, TVA has issued a burn ban on all of the public lands, recreation areas and facility reservations it manages. Campfires, barbeques, smoking and any other flame producing activities are prohibited. In addition, several TVA-managed public sites in the highest-danger zones have been closed to protect the public. See a list of the affected areas.
