I must say that I am not real familiar with how Smith Lake is fed. But during the year of the recent drought they may have had no choice, although a 21+ foot drop seems very extreme for someone like me who is used to the Tennessee river where that sort of drop would be catastrophic! We just didn't have any rain. Most if not all lakes were very low due to that fact. Like I said, I don't know what the main feed of water into Smith is, but I would guess that it is very dependant on rainfall. This is just a guess.
