    Looks like an interesting thread. I lived in Dandridge for a couple of years and moved out to White Pine. I found a few ways to head to NC but mostly by roads.

    Hey Rave. That "splash dam" as you called it is actually the aqueduct tube that carries the water from the lake above the welcome center on Interstate 40 down to the Waterville Dam. That is the only place it is above ground. Quite amazing.

    That makes a lot more sense. I was researching hard trying to figure it out, and I could only find splash dams from the early 1900s. They were all over up in that area, but mostly made from wood. Lit looked like a few might have been made from concrete.

    Anyhow, thanks for the info I'll update the thread accordingly.
