Proposed Section 26a Permit for Marina Expansion Harbor Limits on Hiwassee Reservoir

December 11, 2019

TVA is considering a request for a Section 26a permit for commercial recreational facilities and establishment of approximately 6.4 acres of harbor limits for The Dam Boat Dock, previously called Harbor Cove Marina, on Hiwassee Reservoir in Cherokee County, North Carolina.  The operator proposes to expand by enlarging the sixty existing boatslips and adding an additional 30 boatslips, an office, a fuel dock, and a store. TVA is seeking public comment prior to deciding on permit issuance.

TVA is interested in receiving comments regarding the action’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties, and to identify any other issues associated with this request.  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 January 10, 2020.
