The TVA Regional Resource Stewardship Council (RRSC) will hold a meeting on Wednesday, January 19 and Thursday, January 20, 2011, to consider various matters. The RRSC was established to advise TVA on its natural resource stewardship activities. Notice of this meeting is given under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. App. 2. The management of the Tennessee Valley reservoirs and the lands adjacent to them has long been an integral component of TVA's mission. As part of implementing the TVA Environmental Policy, TVA is developing a Natural Resource Plan (NRP) that will help prioritize techniques for the management of TVA's biological and cultural resource management activities, recreation management activities, water resource protection and improvement activities, and lands planning. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, TVA is also developing an accompanying Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in which TVA will evaluate the preferred strategy for the NRP, as well as other viable alternative strategies. TVA would like to utilize the RRSC as a key stakeholder group throughout the development of the NRP to advise TVA on the issues, tradeoffs, and focus of environmental stewardship activities. At the January 2011 meeting, TVA will be seeking advice from the RRSC on issues regarding the key programs in each resource area, the management options and scenario planning described in the NRP, and the valuation of natural resource programs. The meeting agenda includes the following: 1. Introductions 2. Natural Resource Plan Overview; Options for the management of biological, cultural, water, and recreational resources, and lands planning; Valuation of natural resource programs 3. RRSC Discussion Topic: The scope of the programs included in the resource area components of the NRP (e.g., Biological and Cultural Resource Management, Reservoir Lands Planning, Water Resources, and Recreation) and the valuation and weighting of benefits stemming from such programs 4. Public Comments 5. RRSC Discussion and Advice The TVA RRSC will hear opinions and views of citizens by providing a public comment session. The public comment session will be held at 10:00 a.m., EST, on Thursday, January 20.

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).

Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement, Single Nuclear Unit at the Bellefonte Plant Site, Jackson County, AL
Document Number: 2010-26820
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-25
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
TVA published a record of decision (ROD) for the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for a Single Nuclear Unit at the Bellefonte Plant Site (final SEIS) on September 9, 2010. The location of the proposed nuclear plant site was stated incorrectly in the heading of the ROD. TVA prepared the final SEIS to update the extensive environmental information and analyses that exist respecting the Bellefonte site and the construction and operation of a nuclear power plant on that site. The ROD documents the August 20, 2010, TVA Board of Directors' (TVA Board) approval to spend $248 million for engineering, design, and licensing activities needed to maintain Unit 1 as a viable alternative to meet the projected need for base load generation on the TVA system in 2018-2020. Bellefonte Unit 1 is a partially completed 1,260-megawatt Babcock and Wilcox-designed pressurized light water reactor. It is anticipated that the TVA Board will be asked to approve completion and operation of Unit 1 next year, depending on the results of a new TVA Integrated Resource Plan, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2011.
