A portion of the town of Dandridge would have been flooded by the waters of Douglas Lake if the Tennessee Valley Authority had not built a dike. The top of the dike is an elevation of 1009 feet, seven feet above the dam's crest gates. All of the business district, the Jefferson County Courthouse, county jail, and approximately 1000 feet of Highway 92 would have been below the maximum water level of the reservoir.
