Benton and Marshall Counties, Mississippi
On June 8, 2016, TVA issued an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for its proposal to improve the existing power supply in the Ashland, Mississippi area by constructing, operating, and maintaining a 15 mile transmission line. TVA would purchase easements that provide the necessary rights to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed transmission line route. The ROW easements TVA proposes to acquire total approximately 178 acres.
The EA describes the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the transmission line. The EA and FONSI, as well as additional supporting information, are available through the links below.
Additional information on this project is available, including background information, maps, and a project schedule.
