On February 19. 2020, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) issued a final environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for its proposal to replace the existing System Operations Center (SOC) with a new standalone facility constructed approximately three-quarters of a mile northeast of the intersection of State Highways 58 and 60 in Meigs County in Georgetown, Tennessee.
TVA would also build approximately 5.25 miles of double-circuit transmission line, with approximately 4.25 miles located on existing TVA right-of-way (ROW). TVA would also purchase new 100-foot-wide ROW for the remaining one-mile section of transmission line, with approximately 0.2 mile of the new TL being located on the new TVA SOC site.
Additional information on this project is available, including background information, maps, and a project schedule.
