Cherokee Valley Subdivision

Sevier County, Tennessee

On January 23, 2007, TVA issued a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for Mountain Ridge LLC’s proposed Cherokee Valley Subdivision near Sevierville. Construction of various structures in the floodplain of Lost Branch and Walden Creek requires a TVA Section 26a permit.

The Mountain Ridge proposal involves construction of a box culvert in Lost Branch for the subdivision entrance road. Mountain Ridge also proposes to construct an encased aerial sewer line crossing Walden Creek, a stormwater outfall into Walden Creek, and place fill and build houses within the limits of the 100-year floodplain of Walden Creek. TVA’s environmental assessment focuses on potential impacts to floodplains and historic properties.
