Lafayette and Yalobusha Counties, Mississippi
On February 28, 2019, TVA issued an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for its proposal to improve the existing power supply in an area of northern Mississippi served by Tallahatchie Valley Electric Power Association and North East Mississippi Electric Power Association by constructing, operating, and maintaining a 29-mile 161-kilovolt transmission line. TVA would purchase easements that provide the necessary rights to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed transmission line route. The proposed project would require approximately 206 acres of new right-of-way and 109 acres of existing right-of-way.
The EA describes the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the transmission line. The EA and FONSI are available through the links below.
Additional information on this project is available, including background information, maps, and a project schedule.
