Guntersville Reservoir, Marshall County, Alabama
On September 18, 2008, TVA issued a final environmental assessment (EA) and a finding of no significant impact for the proposed development of a commercial marina on 7.5 acres of TVA property on Guntersville Reservoir at Honeycomb Creek Mile 2.3, right bank, Marshall County, Alabama.
The marina developer, Erwin Marine, has requested that TVA grant it the recreation easement and Section 26a permit necessary to develop the marina. The marina would include wet slips, courtesy piers, dry boat storage, a ship’s store, walking trails, and a boat sales showroom. The marina facilities also require approval by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) under Section 10 of the River and Harbors Act and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. USACE was a cooperating agency in the development of the EA. The proposal was the subject of a joint public notice issued by TVA and USACE and is available at USACE’s Web site.
