Dam Safety Modifications at Cherokee, Fort Loudoun, Tellico, and Watts Bar Dams
Document Number: 2014-17038
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
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.

Approval of Construction in the Tennessee River System; Revisions to Administrative Appeals Process; Job Title and Address Updates
Document Number: 2014-01676
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-29
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is making non-substantive changes to Title 18 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The purpose of this rule is to amend the process for issuing final determinations on administrative appeals of permitting decisions under section 26a of the TVA Act. Formerly, final determinations were made by the TVA Board of Directors. In 2004, the TVA Act was amended to change TVA's governance structure from a three-member, full time board to a nine-member, part- time policy board with a chief executive officer (CEO). Accordingly, the TVA Board approved revisions to the section 26a appeals process to provide for an appeal to the CEO followed by a discretionary review by a committee of the Board. The revised appeals process is consistent with the new governance structure. This rule amends TVA's published regulations to incorporate the revisions approved by the Board and to make the regulations consistent with the change in TVA's governance structure. TVA is also making minor changes to update addresses and job and organizational titles.
