Benton-Decatur Counties Wastewater Treatment Plant

Adoption of Environmental Assessment prepared by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Community Assistance

The Benton-Decatur Counties Special Sewer District proposes to construct a wastewater collection and treatment system to serve commercial businesses in the vicinity of Exit 126 off Interstate 40 (I-40) and two nearby I-40 rest areas in southern Benton and northern Decatur Counties, Tennessee.

TVA’s action would be to approve the construction of an outfall from the proposed treatment system under Section 26a of the TVA Act, and to grant a permanent easement over approximately two acres of TVA public land for the sewer line. This TVA public land is currently under license to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge.
