Great Falls Lake is impounded by Great Falls Dam, a hydroelectric dam on the Caney Fork River. The dam straddles the White County and Warren County line in Tennessee. It is the only dam outside the Tennessee River watershed owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority. In 1901, Nashville entrepreneur Arthur Dyer formed the Great Falls Power Company and began construction work on the dam's foundation in 1915 and by late 1916, the dam had been completed. The dam went into operation on January 1, 1917. The section of river below the dam's powerhouse is world-renowned for kayaking and canoeing.
