30-Year Commercial Recreation Easement on Douglas Reservoir

Mountain Cove Marina – Douglas Reservoir – Sevier County, Tennessee

March 30, 2016

TVA is considering a request to grant a 30-year commercial recreation easement over 35 acres at Mountain Cove Marina on Douglas Reservoir at French Broad River mile 33.1 (right bank) in Sevier County, Tennessee. Mountain Cove Marina LLC has requested the easement for the continued operation of the marina and campground. If granted, Sevier County would terminate its existing public recreation easement over this same area.

TVA is interested in receiving comments regarding the action’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties, and to identify any other issues associated with this request. 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 April 30, 2016. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or e-mailed to jdmcnutt@tva.gov.
