Sale of TVA property at Wheeler Reservoir
Wheeler Reservoir, Tennessee River mile 298.0 (left bank), in Mallard-Fox Creek Industrial Port in Morgan County, Alabama.
TVA is considering the sale of approximately 79 acres of land on Wheeler Reservoir in Decatur, Alabama, at a public auction. TVA is seeking public comment as part of an environmental assessment prior to deciding on the sale.
The land, which is currently on a permanent easement to the Decatur-Morgan County Port Authority for industrial development, has been requested by the Hexcel Corporation. It is located on Wheeler Reservoir, Tennessee River mile 298.0 (left bank), in Mallard-Fox Creek Industrial Port in Morgan County, Alabama.
TVA is interested in receiving comments on the potential for the proposed action to affect the environment or historic properties and to identify any other issues associated with this proposal. The comments will be used to identify issues to be addressed in the environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed action of selling the property. Public comment is invited concerning both the scope of the EA and environmental issues that should be addressed in the EA. Based on prior environmental reviews and preliminary studies of the site, TVA will be conferring with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alabama Department of Environmental Management, Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and Alabama Historical Commission. After completion of the environmental review, if TVA decides to sell the property, the property will be sold at public auction.
Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection. All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before July 25th, 2011. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
