Duck River Bank Stabilization River Mile 176.8

Marshall County, Tennessee

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has issued an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact for the proposed partnership with the Nature Conservancy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Services, and Ms. Debra Allen (land owner) to stabilize 74 feet of eroding river bank of the Duck River at River Mile 176.8 in Marshall County, Tennessee.  TVA coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure federally endangered mussels and other species are protected during the proposed project.  The proposed action also includes approval from TVA under Section 26a of the TVA Act. The proposed improvements would reduce erosion of the bank and improve habitat for sensitive aquatic species in the river.
