TVA's 20 Year Plan to Manage Natural Resources

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) -- With thousands of acres to look after, the Tennessee Valley Authority has now come up with a 20 year plan to manage all it's resources.

Monday night the TVA hosted the first of three public meetings to get feedback on the plan. This one was at Pellissippi State Community College.

Comments from this meeting and the other meetings will be considered.

Helen Rucker of the TVA says all comments will be a part of public record. "TVA approximately has 293-thousand acres of reservoir lands across 11-thousand miles of shoreline from the east end of the valley all the way to the west end of the valley and the land looks at how we will use it for recreation, like campgrounds and marinas and then also how we manage our developed lands."

The next two meetings will be April 20th at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky and April 25th at Muscle Shoals High School in Alabama.
