As part of the ongoing improvement and maintenance program to ensure TVA’s dams meet today’s stringent industry safety standards, TVA will be conducting core drilling at Great Falls Dam. The core samples are being collected for structural evaluation of the dam as part of an ongoing “health check” of all 49 dams in the TVA system. The drilling does not harm the dam structure. The work begins the week of July 27, and should be completed in about eight weeks.
