Watts Bar Dam
“Watts Bar Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Tennessee River … one of nine dams on the main Tennessee River channel operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority, which built the dam in the early 1940s to provide flood control and electricity and to help create a continuous navigable channel along the entire length of the river. The dam is the technical boundary between the … Watts Bar Lake— which it impounds— and Chickamauga Lake …” (Wikipedia)
