Proposed Public Recreation Easement on Watts Bar Reservoir

March 8, 2018

TVA is considering a request to grant a 30-year public recreation easement over 11.73 acres at Camp Oo-Tah-Nee-Noh-Chee for Athens City Schools Board of Education, on Watts Bar Reservoir at Tennessee River mile 540.7L in Meigs County, Tennessee. Athens City Schools Board of Education (operator) has requested the 30-year public recreation easement for the continued operation of the camp with option to renew an additional 30 years (60 years total). The requested easement would grant long-term land rights to the operator for the use of TVA property.

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 8, 2018. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or e-mailed to
