Kentucky Reservoir Land Management Plan

Kentucky Reservoir is an impoundment of the Tennessee River formed by Kentucky Dam, which is located at Tennessee River mile 22.4. Kentucky Reservoir is situated in Calloway, Livingston, Lyon and Trigg counties in Kentucky, and in Benton, Carroll, Decatur, Hardin, Henderson, Henry, Houston, Humphreys, Perry, Stewart and Wayne counties in west Tennessee.

The scope of the Kentucky Reservoir Land Management Plan (RLMP) is the 74,713.6 acres of TVA-managed land lying above full-pool elevation along with flood-prone areas supporting dewatering units. The Kentucky RLMP contains a regional overview, information about the environment around the reservoir and descriptions of each parcel of land. The reservoir property is divided into parcels, and each parcel is assigned a single land use allocation zone.
