Proposed Section 26a Permit for a Modification to an Existing Commercial Marina on Cherokee Reservoir

TVA is considering a Section 26a application request from Gilmore Dock Operations, LLC to rebuild its marina store and its supporting infrastructure. If the request is approved, Gilmore Dock will be permitted to add a new land-based/water-based platform on driven piles and a new store. Existing approved infrastructure will remain in place. The project is located on Cherokee Reservoir at Holston River Mile 65.0 (right bank) (36° 16' 13.48"N, 83° 23' 39.16"W) in Grainger County, Tennessee.

TVA is interested in receiving comments regarding the action’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties and in identifying any other issues associated with this request prior to making a permit decision. 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 October 7, 2022. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or emailed to [email protected].
