Review process

TVA is the steward of 293,000 acres of public land, which it manages by carefully balancing public needs and agency goals. Land use requests from the public or private sectors can be submitted to any of TVA's Regional Offices. Major requests, when they’re in accord with TVA’s integrated resource management mission, will be submitted to the TVA Board for approval. The watershed offices can handle minor requests.

TVA’s rulings are governed by the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires that decisions take into account the proposed actions’ environmental impact and their effect on cultural and historical properties and artifacts.
