Northwest Tennessee Regional Port Authority

Lake County, Tennessee

TVA has issued an Environmental Assessment (EA) Adoption and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for making a loan to the Northwest Tennessee Regional Port Authority to assist in the purchase of land for the development of a new port facility on the Mississippi River at Cates Landing, Tennessee. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) prepared an EA as part of a Detailed Project Report in August 2004. TVA reviewed the USACE EA, concurred with its findings, and determined that the proposed TVA loan would not be a major federal action significantly affecting the environment. The port and industrial park together could ultimately create more than 5,600 jobs over time.
