Notice of availability of final document.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the availability of a final document, Clinch and Powell Valley Watershed Ecological Risk Assessment (EPA/600/R-01/050, September 2002), prepared as a collaborative effort between the National Center for Environmental Assessment—Washington (NCEA-W) within EPA's Office of Research and Development, The Nature Conservancy, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and other organizations. This watershed ecological risk assessment was developed to help protect the native mussels and fish of the Clinch and Powell Valley watershed. The report is based on the Guidelines for Ecological Risk Assessment (U.S. EPA, 1998) and advice and support from NCEA, while exercising the necessary flexibility to implement the risk assessment approach at the watershed scale. The document includes brief descriptions of the process that the workgroup followed and the major analyses performed.
