Sale of TVA Property
Chatuge Reservoir, Hiwassee River, Towns County, Georgia
Blue Ridge Mountain Electric Membership Cooperative (BRMEMC) has submitted a request for approximately 2 acres of TVA property for construction of a substation site and a small portion of a transmission line right-of-way.
The requested property is located on Chatuge Reservoir, Hiwassee River, Towns County, Georgia, and is located along U.S. Highway 76 just south of the city limits of Hiawassee, Georgia. (See vicinity and exhibit map.) The requested property is known as Parcel 52 in the Draft Mountain Reservoirs Land Management Plan. Construction of the substation and associated transmission line is needed by BRMEMC to handle increasing demand for electrical service in the area. If approved, TVA would be compensated for the fair market value of the property.
