Tailwater Temperature Monitors


Over the past year, we have heard several concerns about the lower water flows on the South Holston River causing warmer water on the lower stretches of the river. On Tuesday May 24th, OMTU installed temperature monitors on the upper, middle, and lower portions of the South Holston River. These temperature monitors will give us valuable information regarding the lower water flows on the South Holston River. We also have four (4) temperature monitors to install on the Watauga River. This will be installed in late July 2022. We plan to collect the data once per month and we will post the results below.
