Episode Narrative Governor Phil Bredesen had requested federal disaster drought assistance aid for farmers across all 95 counties in Tennessee on July 5, 2007. The request was approved by the USDA on July 31. The assistance will give an opportunity for farmers to receive low interest loans.
The impact of the drought continued into July. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) average system inflow above Chickamauga Dam for the week ending July 8 was 4,010 cubic feet per second (cfs). That inflow for the week ending July 8 ranks 105th out of 105 years of record for this time of year. Tennessee has 37 drinking water supply systems taking voluntary or mandatory conservation measures. That is up from 36.
The lack of rainfall is making it difficult for TVA to keep river reservoirs full. As a result, hydroelectric power production is being cut by 50 percent.
TVA is having to purchase electricity from more expensive sources, namely from electric plants that produce electricity from fossil fuels. This increased cost to TVA will be passed along to consumers as early as October 1, 2007.
The Jackson County Utility District issued a State of Emergency and water restrictions rules for its customers. Second time violators of these restrictions will have their water meter taken out until restrictions are lifted and fines are paid.
The State of Emergency was declared by the Red Boiling Springs Mayor and Water Commissioner. The State of Emergency was issued on July 17th.
