Cornelius Channel Dredge

Colbert County, Alabama

TVA has adopted an environmental assessment (EA) prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for approval of a channel excavation on TVA property to provide access to waterfront lots on Pickwick Reservoir. The area to be excavated is a small cove located north of Cherokee, Alabama. 

The channel excavation would be 325 feet in length with a width of 150 feet. TVA independently evaluated the project and conducted a field review for the presence of historic properties.  TVA finds that the project would have insignificant effects on environmental resources.
