Description:

The Norris Dam is being built and supervised by the T. V. A. (Tennessee Valley Authority) and is named for United States Senator George W. Norris, of Nebraska. It is located on the Clinch River in Tennessee, just below where Gover Greek joins and for this reason was formerly called the Cove Creek Dam. The Dam proper will be 253 feet high from foundation to roadway, 210 feet thick at the base and 1800 feet long at the top. The waters impounded by Norris Dam will form an aritifical lake of 3,600,000 acre-feet covering some 80 square miles with a shore line of more than 800 miles. It is estimated that it will take three years to complete and the cost will be thirty-four million dollars
