TVA plans to lower the water levels in the Melton Hill Reservoir to make it easier for property owners to do maintenance and cleanup work on docks and shorelines.

The annual Melton Hill River Rescue cleanup day is scheduled for Saturday, March 23.  TVA will lower the water level from 2 to 4 feet, beginning Friday through Monday, when the lake will begin rising to its summer recreation level.

For information about cleanup locations on TVA reservoirs, where to get trash bags and gloves for litter pickup, and how to find information about private docks or shoreline stabilization, contact TVA's Environmental Information Center at 800-882-5263.
