Watercress Subdivision Impoundment

Limestone County, Alabama

On January 24, 2008, TVA issued a finding of no significant impact for the proposed construction of a private 9-acre impoundment in the Watercress Subdivision near Athens, Alabama. The impoundment would be located on an unnamed tributary of Round Island Creek, a tributary to Wheeler Reservoir.

The impoundment requires approval by TVA under Section 26a of the TVA Act and approval by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. TVA cooperated with the Corps in the development of an environmental assessment of the proposed impoundment. TVA adopted this environmental assessment.
