TVA Invites Public Input On Proposed Floating Cabin Rule Amendments

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

The Tennessee Valley Authority is inviting the public to review Phase II of its proposed rules governing floating cabins.

The proposed amendments would establish health, safety and environmental standards for floating cabins, including standards for electrical safety, flotation, mooring and wastewater discharge. The proposed amendments also address TVA’s ongoing management and administration of the floating cabins program.

The Proposed Phase II Rule Amendments can be found on the TVA website.

Written comments can be sent to David B. Harrell, Program Manager, Tennessee Valley Authority, 400 West Summit Hill Dr., WT 11A-K, Knoxville, Tn. 37902. Comments also may be submitted by email to fc@tva.gov or dbharrell@tva.gov.

Comments must be received on or before March 9, 2020.

TVA invites the public to visit tva.gov/floatingcabins for more information about the proposed amendments.
