This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Cherokee Reservoir in the counties of Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson and Hawkins in Tennessee with the following interesting stats carved into it:
28,780 Surface Acres
Nearly 400 Miles of Shoreline
In order to maintain dissolved oxygen concentrations in the river below the dam at levels that will support aquatic life, perforated hoses suspended above the bottom of Cherokee Reservoir are used to inject oxygen into the reservoir water and devices which resemble large underwater fans located just above the dam are used to push warm oxygenated water downward to the depths where water is released for hydroelectric generation
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
