Environmental Reviews

TVA conducts environmental reviews in accordance with the  National Environmental Policy Act, which requires federal agencies to consider the effects of their proposed projects on the human and natural environment before final decisions are made. These environmental reviews under NEPA typically also include assessments that facilitate compliance with other environmental reviews requirements, such as those under the  National Historic Preservation Act and the  Endangered Species Act

Reservoir Operations Study

Record of Decision

The TVA Board of Directors has issued a decision on a new operating policy for the Tennessee River and reservoir system. TVA and the cooperating agencies (the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) have prepared this Record of Decision to document the details of the decision and the rationale for the decision.

Final Environmental Impact Statement

TVA and the cooperating agencies prepared this final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) to document the environmental, social, and economic impacts associated with reservoir operations policy alternatives evaluated in the Reservoir Operations Study (ROS). The purpose of the ROS was to enable TVA to determine whether changes in its reservoir operations policy would produce greater overall public value.
