Shoals Landing Marina
Colbert County, Alabama
On September 12, 2006, TVA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact and subsequently issued a Section 26a permit for the Shoals Landing Marina.
Putnam Properties has proposed to construct this new commercial marina in the Town Creek embayment of Wilson Reservoir. The marina facilities would include 398 boat slips, a ship store, and a fuel dock.
To provide adequate water depth, a channel would be dredged from the center of Wilson Reservoir to the marina site. Shoreline would be stabilized with riprap, and a boardwalk would be constructed along the shoreline. The new boat slips and docks, shoreline riprap, and boardwalk require approval under Section 26a of the TVA Act.
Because the project also required permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the proposal was announced to the public through Joint Public Notice 06-10, dated January 31, 2006. TVA cooperated with the Corps in preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) which was jointly issued on August 3, 2006.
