Last week Tim was at the Chickamauga Lock. The lock allows barges and other boats to travel past the Chickamauga Dam, lifting and lowering them about 50 feet between Chickamauga and Nickajack reservoirs. The lock is owned by TVA and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. An average of .7 – 2.7 million tons of cargo passed through the lock every year between 1997 and 2010.
