Norris Watershed Land Transfer

Anderson County, Tennessee

On September 13, 2005 TVA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact and final Environmental Assessment for the transfer of a 420-acre parcel of fee-owned land adjacent to TVA’s Norris Dam Reservation in Anderson County, Tennessee, to the city of Norris (City).

This land adjoins current City property and is managed under lease as part of the Norris watershed. The City property and TVA property are managed together to provide various types of low-impact recreation, potable water, and occasional forest products.

TVA proposes to transfer the property in fee to the City pursuant to Section 4(k)a of the TVA Act. The 420-acre tract is part of the public recreation available in the Norris vicinity, and the proposed action would result in a use consistent with the surrounding existing land use.
