Media Updates Held to Inform Public

AUGUST 2, 2017—Boone Dam area officials and members of the media were provided updates on repair work at the dam on July 27. TVA Vice President of Land Resource Management David Bowling said the project is currently on track for completion in 2022. He stated that the safety of the downstream public remains TVA’s top priority. “Our primary commitment, our driver on the whole project, is to ensure the downstream safety for the folks in Kingsport and the folks that live downstream of the dam,” he said. Bowling referred questions about vegetation management to the TVA website.  Property owners are asked to review our online brochure to determine the best course of action to remove their vegetation. https://www.tva.com/Newsroom/Boone-Dam-Project/Boone-Exposed-Lakebed-An-Owners-Guide
