Environmental Impact Statement for Shawnee Fossil Plant Coal Combustion Residual Management
Document Number: 2016-26272
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-11-01
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) intends to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to address the potential environmental effects associated with ceasing operations at the special waste landfill and Ash Pond 2 and constructing, operating, and maintaining a new dry coal combustion residual (CCR) landfill at the Shawnee Fossil Plant (SHF) located near Paducah, Kentucky in McCracken County. The purpose of the proposed project is to foster TVA's compliance with present and future regulatory requirements related to CCR production and management, including the requirements of EPA's CCR Rule and Effluent Limitations Guidelines Rule. In the environmental review, TVA will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of closure of the special waste landfill and Ash Pond 2 as well as the construction, operation, and maintenance of an onsite dry CCR landfill or disposal of CCR in an existing offsite permitted landfill. TVA will develop and evaluate various alternatives, including the No Action Alternative, in the EIS. Public comments are invited concerning both the scope of the review and environmental issues that should be addressed.

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.
