Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request
The proposed information collection described below will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The Tennessee Valley Authority is soliciting public comments on this renewal of an existing information collection.
Environmental Impact Statement-Transmission System Vegetation Management Program
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.
