Amended Record of Decision. AGENCY: ACTION: The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is amending its July 2, 2013, Record of Decision (ROD) for the Final Environmental Impact Statement for Dam Safety Modifications at Cherokee, Fort Loudoun, Tellico, and Watts Bar Dams. In the 2013 ROD, TVA decided to implement the dam safety modifications described in the preferred Alternative B, Permanent Modifications of Dam Structures: Combination of Concrete Floodwalls and Earthen Embankments. Based on the results of subsequent engineering and feasibility studies, TVA has revised its approach for the permanent modifications to incorporate the use of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) at Cherokee and Fort Loudoun Dams and increases in the elevations of modifications at Fort Loudoun, Tellico, and Watts Bar Dams. In May, 2014, TVA completed a Supplemental Analysis (SA) of the potential impacts of the proposed revisions to the dam safety modifications. Based on the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and the SA, TVA now amends the July 2013 ROD to incorporate the revised approach. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles P. Nicholson, NEPA Compliance Manager, Tennessee Valley Authority, 400 West Summit Hill Drive, WT 11D, Knoxville, Tennessee 37902– 1499; telephone 865–632–3582, or email cpnicholson@tva.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations (40 CFR 1500 to 1508) and TVA’s procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). TVA is an agency and instrumentality of the United States, established by an act of Congress in 1933, to foster the social and economic welfare of the people of the Tennessee SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42393 Valley region and to promote the proper use and conservation of the region’s natural resources. A fundamental part of this mission was the construction and operation of an integrated system of dams and reservoirs. As directed by the TVA Act, TVA uses this system to manage the water resources of the Tennessee River for the purposes of navigation, flood control, and power production. Consistent with these purposes, TVA operates the system to provide a wide range of other benefits. As the Federal agency responsible for the operation of numerous dams, and consistent with the Federal Guidelines for Dam Safety issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, TVA prepares for the worst case flooding event in order to protect against dam failure, loss of life, major property damage, and impacts to critical facilities. This worst case flooding event is known as the PMF, defined as the flood that may be expected from the most severe combination of critical meteorological and hydrological conditions that are reasonably possible in a particular area. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) nuclear plant operating regulations also require that nuclear plants be protected against the adverse effects of the PMF. TVA periodically reviews and revises its calculations of PMF elevations. During the most recent review (completed in 2008), TVA determined that the updated PMF elevations at Cherokee, Fort Loudoun, Tellico, and Watts Bar Dams, as well as at TVA’s Watts Bar and Sequoyah Nuclear Plants, were higher than previously calculated. The differences in PMF elevations are sufficient to indicate that a PMF event could cause water to flow over the top of the dams, even with the floodgates wide open, possibly resulting in dam failure. Failure of one or more of these dams would result in extensive damage to buildings, infrastructure, property, and natural resources, as well as potential personal injury and loss of life. In 2009, TVA implemented temporary measures at the four dams to remain consistent with Federal guidelines and to comply with nuclear operating regulations for safe operations of the river and reservoir system, and to minimize the potential effects of the PMF. These temporary measures consisted of raising the heights of the four dams by installing interconnected, fabric lined HESCO Concertainer® units filled with crushed stone on top of the earthen embankments of each dam. In a January 25, 2012 letter from NRC to TVA, NRC stated that the HESCO barriers were not capable of resisting impacts from large debris during a flood E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM 21JYN1
