When I was an administrator at UTSI this was the view we had in autumn. Reservoir is 13 miles long and purpose is to supply cooling water for AEDC aerospace ground test cells. This location is about a mile from the dam impounding the Elk River.

Below the dam, the Elk River flows through Estill Springs and about 30 miles downsteam of this dam is the Tims Ford Dam, operated by TVA which has the capability of generating electrical power via water turbines. About four miles to the East of this dam is Treetops, the Lake House that we owned on Tims Ford Lake. Below this dam is very good trout fishing in the Elk River. The Elk River then flows through Fayetteville, Tn and thence flows into the Tennessee River in northern Alabama.
