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

Fayetteville, Tn and thence flows into the Tennessee River in northern
