Center Hilll Dam

Nashville, Tennessee

The Center Hill Dam Foundation Re-mediation Project is located on the Caney Fork River about 96 km (60 miles) east of Nashville, Tennessee. The Caney Fork River is a major tributary of the Cumberland River, which fl ows into the Ohio River near its mouth at the Mississippi River. The Center Hill Dam was constructed in the late 1940s to produce electricity and assist in fl ood control. In 2007, the dam’s owner, the United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), classifi ed this dam as Dam Safety Action Classifi cation (DSAC) I priority, the highest classifi cation for remediation urgency. The USACE decided immediately to reduce the lake pool level until remediation could be completed.
