Cheoah, like Calderwood and Chilhowee, is operated in a run-of-river mode, following the daily cycle, peaking operations of the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) Fontana Dam located upstream of Cheoah.
Water release schedules often change without notice due to unanticipated changes in weather conditions and power system requirements.
Use caution near dams. A large amount of water may be discharged without warning at any time. Your safety depends on obeying all posted safety regulations and warnings.
Please be advised that Brookfield Renewable has deployed a new mobile friendly website for all water data pertaining to their assets. Users should visit and bookmark safewaters.com for all future data needs. Please be safe on the water!
