Blount County is bordered on the east by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and on the west by a great chain of lakes created by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). A federally owned corporation in the United States decreed by congressional charter in May 1933, TVA provides navigation, flood control, electricity generation, fertilizer manufacturing, and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. The Little River, flowing out of the Great Smoky Mountains, winds its way across the County and pours into the Tennessee Valley lakes.
