TVA To Hold Public Meeting On Land Management Planning

Thursday, January 12, 2017

The Tennessee Valley Authority is hosting a public meeting to involve interested residents in learning more about proposed changes to its land management plans associated with eight reservoirs, including Chickamauga and Nickajack. The public will also have the opportunity to provide comments during the meeting.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center, 1150 Carter Street.

In 2016, TVA began an environmental review as part of the planning process. A public scoping session was completed and comments have been incorporated in a draft Environmental Impact Statement, which is now open for public review and comment through Jan. 31. The EIS will be discussed at the Jan. 18 meeting.

A copy of the draft EIS and the associated land plans can be found at www.tva.gov/landplanreview.
