Notes
As well as controlling water levels, the Big East River system was used every spring for log runs. The various lumber companies in the area stamped their logs and sent them down the river with the spring runoff. On entering Lake Vernon from the river they were sorted by the stamps, according to the company, into booms and towed by tugboat to the various mills for cutting. The last log run in the Huntsville area on the Big East River was in 1937.
