Over $250,000 in TVA funds was recently provided to USGS to hire a post-doctorate to develop and refine various models as part of the Tims Ford Dam adaptive management/structured decision making process; this effort will occur through 2011 - 2013. In conjunction with this effort, a graduate student is being provided by TN Tech. to study the boulder darter population in the Elk River drainage. Her study will involve: 1) describing the micro- and macrohabitat requirements of the boulder darter, and 2) assisting in determining the current distribution of boulder darters in the Elk River. Results will be provided to TVA to guide them in modifying operations associated with hydropower generation at Tims Ford Dam with the goal of warming spring and summer tailwater temperatures and lessening water level fluctuations year-round, especially at times critical to successful reproduction of the boulder darter.
