Proposed Easement and Section 26a Permit for the Expansion of an Existing Commercial Marina on Norris Reservoir

TVA is considering a request from Sequoyah Marina, LLC to grant a 30-year commercial recreation easement over approximately 5.82 acres on Norris Reservoir at Clinch River Mile 83.8 (left bank), in Anderson County, Tennessee. The request will replace an existing agreement the operator has with TVA to occupy 6.5 acres for land-based facilities.

TVA is also considering a Section 26a application request at this location for additional marina infrastructure and the expansion of harbor limits for Sequoyah Marina on Norris Reservoir.  If the requests are approved, Sequoyah Marina, LLC will be permitted to expand and reconfigure their existing marina infrastructure and floating cabin mooring space.  The proposal will increase the existing harbor limits by eight acres to a total of 29.5 acres for water-based facilities.

TVA is interested in receiving comments regarding the action’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties, and to identify any other issues associated with this request.  Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection.  All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before April 7, 2023.  Written comments may be mailed to the address below or e-mailed to [email protected].
