Norris Dam and powerhouse. Night view of Norris Dam with floodlighting. The more spectacular dams of the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) are equipped to be floodlit at night and are popular excursion points. Pinpoint lights along top of dam are small lenses in back of the handrail bracket road lighting fixtures. Wet spots on dam are the result of small shrinkage cracks during initial years which later sealed themselves by the sediment contained in the water

Dams under construction. Cherokee Dam is the latest headwaters dam to be completed. It is a semioutdoors type structure, the covers over the three initial generating units show in the picture behind the railing in front. The office wing of the control building is on the left. The shot is taken between the legs of the gantry crane which is used for installation and removal for repairs of turbines and generators. The cage-like steel contraptions mounted on the spillway piers are the anchorages for the floodgate hinges
