Issuance of record of decision. AGENCY: ACTION: The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has decided to adopt the preferred alternative in its final supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for the Natural Resource Plan (NRP). The TVA Board of Directors (Board) accepted the NRP and authorized TVA’s Chief Executive Officer to implement the preferred alternative at its May 7, 2020, meeting. This alternative updates the NRP and will guide TVA’s natural resource management over the next 20 years.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations (40 CFR parts 1500 to 1508) and TVA’s procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 18 CFR part 1318). 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 Valley region SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00142 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and to promote the proper use and conservation of the region’s natural resources. TVA’s threefold mission is to provide affordable and reliable power, promote sustainable economic development, and act as a steward of the Valley’s natural resources. The lands managed by TVA in the name of the United States of America are some of the most important resources of the region. These lands include approximately 293,000 acres associated with the TVA reservoir system that are managed for the benefit of the public. Most of these lands remain undeveloped and are managed by TVA to provide natural resource conservation, recreation, and the protection of cultural resources. In 2011, TVA completed its first NRP to guide its natural resource stewardship efforts. After considering alternative approaches to resource management, the Board adopted a Blended Management alternative as the NRP because it aligned best with TVA’s Environmental Policy, focused on key programs that establish a baseline for future enhanced implementation efforts, and provided flexibility to use partnerships and other sources of funding to leverage programs to their full potential while working within resource and staff constraints (75 FR 57100, September 15, 2011). The 2011 NRP addressed TVA’s management of programs and activities for six resource areas: Biological, cultural, and water resources; recreation; reservoir lands planning; and public engagement. In the 2011 NRP, TVA committed to reviewing the NRP every five years and updating the plan as needed to ensure it remains relevant and current. In 2016, as part of the NRP review process, TVA staff reviewed the NRP and determined that a Blended Management approach continues to be the most appropriate and effective plan for managing the waters and public lands of the Tennessee River Valley. However, TVA determined that because the 2011 NRP did not encompass all of the resource stewardship programs managed by TVA, the NRP was not fully serving as the comprehensive strategic guide as was first envisioned. Based on this assessment, TVA determined that updating the NRP was the best path forward to address identified concerns. After developing the initial scope of changes needed, TVA initiated a NEPA review to supplement the 2011 Environmental Impact Statement. Alternatives Considered Consistent with the requirements of NEPA, TVA analyzed two alternatives in the NRP SEIS. Under the No Action E:\FR\FM\10JYN1.SGM 10JYN1
