Public Notice Sale and Abandonment of Restrictive Covenants of WA Property at Chickamauga Reservoir
Unnamed tributary to South Mouse Creek at Hiwassee River Mile 15.5 (left bank), Chickamauga Reservoir, Bradley County, Tennessee
TVA is considering the sale of approximately 0.55 acres of land on Chickamauga Reservoir in Bradley County, Tennessee, at a public auction. TVA is also considering the abandonment of approximately 0.45 acres of certain restrictive covenants over sales tract XCR-325.
The land is located on an unnamed tributary to South Mouse Creek at Hiwassee River Mile 15.5 (left bank). The property has been requested by Wacker Polysilicon North America LLC (Wacker) for use as an industrial road crossing and above ground pipeline crossing between the Wacker property and the Olin Mathieson Chemical property. The chemicals in the aboveground pipeline include steam, chlorine, caustic soda, and hydrogen. The above ground pipeline will be placed on a pipe rack structure approximately 20 feet above the ground. Additionally, this request will require the issuance of a 26a permit within the 500-year floodplain.
TVA is interested in receiving comments on the potential of the proposed action to affect the environment or historic properties, and to identify any other issues associated with this proposal. These comments will be considered to reach a decision concerning the proposed action. After completion of the environmental review, if TVA decides to sell the property, the property will be sold at public auction.
Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection. All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before October 21, 2011. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or emailed to:
