Small Businesses or Organizations Affected: No.
Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,000.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 900.

Need For and Use of Information: As part of system wide re-evaluation of TVA reservoirs and tailwaters, TVA conducted a survey of recreation use on 13 representative reservoirs and 6 representative tailwaters during calendar year 2002. Recreation use estimates were made for public use areas, commercial marinas, river outfitters, and private home owners. In each case, information was collected on the amount of recreation use, length of stay, facility preference, trip origin, expenditures and economic impact.
These data now form the foundation for a TVA reservoir and tailwater recreation database—the first system-wide estimates on recreation use in the Valley collected since 1978. TVA recognizes the value of this database and proposes to keep it up-to-date and, improving its utility by refining the survey design and conducting additional surveys of recreational use on representative reservoirs and tailwaters.Start Signature
