Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (``TVA'') intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (``EIS'') to address the management of vegetation on its transmission system. In order to ensure that electric service to the public is not disrupted by outages on its transmission lines, TVA must control the vegetation on about 260,000 acres of the rights of way (``ROW'') for those lines. This EIS will programmatically consider the impacts of vegetation management activities on approximately 17,000 miles of transmission line.
