The Center Hill Dam Foundation Re-mediation Project is located on the Caney Fork River about 96 km (60 miles) east of Nashville, Tennessee. The Caney Fork River is a major tributary of the Cumberland River, which ﬂ ows into the Ohio River near its mouth at the Mississippi River. The Center Hill Dam was constructed in the late 1940s to produce electricity and assist in ﬂ ood control. In 2007, the dam’s owner, the United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), classiﬁ ed this dam as Dam Safety Action Classiﬁ cation (DSAC) I priority, the highest classiﬁ cation for remediation urgency. The USACE decided immediately to reduce the lake pool level until remediation could be completed.
