The TWRA will host two public meetings to discuss management of the South Fork Holston River below South Holston Dam and the Watauga River below Wilbur Dam on Nov. 26 and 27. The Tennessee Valley Authority will also be represented at the meetings to address questions pertaining to their management of the rivers and facilities.
The South Fork Holston meeting will be held on Nov. 26, from 6-8 p.m. at the Sullivan County Department of Education and Health (1st floor Boardroom) at 154 Blountville Bypass Blountville, Tn. On Nov. 27, a similar meeting to discuss issues with the Watauga River will be held at the Carter County Courthouse (second floor Courtroom) from 6-8 p.m. at 801 East Elk Ave., Elizabethton, Tn.
Both meetings are intended to give the public information about current management and act as listening sessions for the Agency to gather information. The information gathered from the public will aid in the future management of the rivers.
