NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Due to a lack of substantial rainfall over the past few months, much of the Cumberland River Basin had been classified in a moderate drought category.

Due to this lower-than-normal water level, swimmers and boaters are advised to be especially cautious when recreating at J. Percy Priest Lake.

Lower water levels make navigation more hazardous in more shallow areas where structures such as rocks or snags are closer to the surface.
