TVA Seeks Public Input On Revised Tellico Reservoir Land Management Plan

Wednesday, November 17, 2021

The Tennessee Valley Authority is seeking public input on proposed revisions to the 2000 Tellico Reservoir Land Management Plan in Blount, Loudon and Monroe counties. 

Based on a review of current use of TVA lands on Tellico Reservoir, TVA is proposing allocation changes to approximately 16 percent of lands on the reservoir and has prepared an environmental assessment of the proposed changes. TVA uses reservoir land management plans to guide land use approvals, private water use facility permitting, and resource management decisions on TVA-managed public land. 

TVA invites public input on the draft environmental assessment, draft reservoir land management plan, and the proposal’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties.  The public can view the proposed plan and other information through Jan, 15, 2022 at www.tva.gov/landplanreview or by attending a virtual meeting at https://tvavirtual.com/tellico/.  TVA is also hosting a webinar on Dec. 7, starting at 5 p.m. to discuss the project.  Visit www.tva.gov/landplanreview to register for the webinar. A recording of the event will be available to view after it ends.

The public may submit comments through Jan. 15, 2022, to Lesley Webb, TVA Senior Policy & Project Management Specialist, 2835-A East Wood Street, Paris, Tn. 38242; or by email to landplans@tva.gov.  Due to COVID-19, TVA recommends submitting comments electronically for their timely review and consideration.

Note that all comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and available for public inspection.
