Tellico Reservoir, also known as Tellico Lake, is a reservoir in Tennessee, created by the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1979 upon the completion of Tellico Dam. Tellico Reservoir was the last major reservoir created by the TVA. The completion of Tellico Dam was nearly halted by decision by the Supreme Court regarding the Endangered Species Act. After Congress specifically exempted Tellico Dam from the Endangered Species Act, the work was finished. The Reservoir inundated several Native American sites, including the sites of Chota and Tanasi.
