Severcorr 2 - Catalpa Creek - Lowndes County Power Supply Improvement Project

Lowndes County, Mississippi

On January 30, 2008, TVA issued a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for the SeverCorr 2 - Catalpa Creek - Lowndes County Power Supply Improvement Project. This project involves the construction and operation of two new switching stations and 4.8 miles of new 161-kilovolt (kV) transmission lines, upgrading 10.3 miles of existing transmission line from 46-kV to 161-kV operation, and expanding an existing substation in Lowndes County, Mississippi.

The proposed power supply improvements would address the electrical needs of an expansion of the SeverCorr steel mill, a new PACCAR, Inc., plant, and anticipated reliability problems resulting from other industrial load growth in the Golden Triangle area. They would also provide a connection to 4-County Electric Power Association’s planned Catalpa Creek Substation.
