Private Water Use Facilites on the French Broad River

The federally threatened snail darter and federally endangered pink mucket occur in the lower French Broad and Holston rivers.  To minimize the potential for individual and cumulative impacts to these species from the anticipated increase in the number of shoreline alteration approval requests, and to streamline the Section 26a review process, TVA has established a set of standards and guidelines for construction of private water-use facilities that are specific to the French Broad River between miles 3.7 and 32.3 and the Holston River between miles 4.4 and 52.3.
