Seven Falls Golf and River Club
Henderson County, North Carolina
On October 21, 2008, TVA issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for approval under Section 26a of the TVA Act for various construction activities associated with the development of Seven Falls Golf and River Club. The applicant, Mountain Development Company, LLC, proposes to develop this resort on a 1,400-acre tract south of the town of Etowah in Henderson County, North Carolina. The development would include approximately 700 single-family lots, 164 town homes, 36 condominiums, and 24 lodge rooms. Amenities would include an 18-hole golf course, an equestrian center, and a river club.
TVA’s 26a approval authorizes the construction of 12 bridges, 49 culverts, 1.48 acres of wetland fill, an irrigation intake, a wastewater treatment plant outfall, 6,990 linear feet of stream impact/stabilization and a boat launch ramp. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has also issued a permit for these actions under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. TVA consulted with the USACE in the preparation of an environmental assessment (EA) of the proposed action. TVA has adopted the USACE EA. All pertinent documents are provided below.
