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.

The TVA Regional Resource Stewardship Council (RRSC) will hold a meeting on Wednesday, June 29, 2011, to consider TVA's Natural Resource Plan. 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 reservoir 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 is using 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. The draft NRP and accompanying draft EIS were recently released for public comment. At the June 2011 meeting, TVA will be seeking advice from the RRSC on issues regarding the programs which comprise the NRP. The meeting agenda includes the following: 1. Introductions. 2. Natural Resource Plan overview; Programs included in the NRP for biological, cultural, water, and recreational resources and reservoir lands planning; Historical spending; NRP funding and implementation; and incorporation of advice received from the RRSC at its April 2011 meeting. 3. Public Comments. 4. Council Discussion and Advice. The RRSC will hear opinions and views of citizens by providing a public comment session. The public comment session will be held at 2 p.m. E.D.T., on Wednesday, June 29.
