Need for and Use of Information: The Tennessee Valley Authority, in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is assessing the status of the safety harbors and safety landings located along the Tennessee River and its tributaries. This type of assessment was performed approximately ten years ago. However, due to the changing river conditions and uses over the past several years, along with the growing demand for lake access, it is important to identify and preserve the most essential and useful safety harbors and safety landings that are currently designated. Only those safety harbors and safety landings that are considered nonessential and unusable by the towing industry would be discontinued. The information provided through this assessment will be used to support the justification of preserving stretches of shoreline for commercial navigation uses. Respondents are not required to answer all of the questions, but are requested to focus their review on the portion of the river that their tows transit.Start Signature
