Boone Lake Drawdown and BLA
BLA is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping Boone Lake free of trash and debris and improving water quality. As is everyone who uses and loves the lake, we are very concerned about the environmental and economic impact regarding the news about Boone Dam and the lake levels. These concerns have been relayed to TVA who is the governing body of the lake and dam. They are basing their decisions on extensive information and regards for safety. We welcome your comments on the BLA facebook page but if you would like to also express your concerns directly to TVA, please visit TVA’s facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TVA
On Monday, June 22, TVA will begin weekly updates concerning the Boone Dam earthen embankment repair at the following website:
Boaters should use caution while operating on Boone Lake because of the lower-than-normal water levels. Even seasoned boaters familiar with Boone can get into an unsafe situation
from shallow underwater hazards like rocks, stumps and debris.

Located in upper East Tennessee, Boone Lake has part of both the Holston and Watauga Rivers and over 600 nearby streams in the area.
The Boone Lake Association (BLA) is the only citizen group responsible for conserving Boone Lake by conducting water quality testing, generating water quality reports and continual lake clean-up. As thousands use Boone Lake each year to enjoy fishing and watersports, few understand they have the members of the BLA and their decades of protection to thank for the clean and clear waters.
Whether you're 18 or 88, a day on the lake will make you feel like a kid. Members' dues make it possible to have fun in a cleaner, safer environment.
