February 1, 2021

TVA is considering a request by Brad Bardo for a Section 26a permit for marina facilities and expansion of harbor limits for Powell Valley Marina on Norris Reservoir. The proposal includes replacement of all existing marina boat slips with eight new multi-slip docks with utilities, adding approximately 350 boat slips to the marina, replacement of the above ground fuel tank, upland expansion of an existing boat launch, improving another existing ramp with concrete, mooring lines, and additional campsites with water and electric. The proposal will increase the harbor limits 13.8 acres to a total of 42.8 acres to accommodate the marina and floating cabin structures. The location is on Davis Creek Mile 4.0 R at Powell River Mile 17.0 R in Campbell County, Tennessee.
