Lincoln County Raw Water Intake

Lincoln County, Tennessee

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has issued an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact for the proposed construction and operation of a raw water intake at Elk River Mile 75.3, left bank, in Lincoln County, Tennessee.  The proposed action also includes construction of a surface water withdrawal facility comprised of a water intake, pump building and associated water treatment plant.  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 new facilities will improve the reliability of a safe water supply for unincorporated areas of Lincoln County, Tennessee.
