Word and Boggus Lindsey Harbor Development

Word and Boggus Construction Company is requesting the purchase of 4.43 acres of TVA public land in the Lindsey Hollow area of Guntersville Reservoir in Marshall County, Alabama.  In addition, they have requested Section 26a approval to construct a 23.5-acre man-made lake and a 2,450-linear foot channel in Lindsey Slough to connect to Guntersville Reservoir. 

The proposed development would impact 4,107 linear feet of stream habitat and approximately 10 acres of wetlands.  The applicant has developed a new mitigation plan to offset impacts of the proposed development.  The new harbor would facilitate development of a 332.8-acre private land parcel into the Lindsey Harbor development. 

TVA and the USACE have prepared an Environmental Assessment to understand more clearly what the potential environmental impacts associated with the land sale, lake and channel construction, and the Lindsey Harbor development would be. The Figures and Appendices are available upon request to Ken Parr at 423-751-4254.
