TVA (as do other entities responsible for navigable waterways) also has a fundamental requirement and objective to maintain a minimum river channel depth (~9 feet, as I recall) for navigation of large river traffic (tow boats, barges, etc.). This means we will always have run-of-river (main channels) water available; assuming it rains in the mountains.
