TVA seeks public input on power line project

April 10th, 2013 by Staff Report in Local - Breaking News

TVA is asking the public for input concerning a transmission line project it said would provide added power for industrial expansion in Marion County.

The power agency is planning to build four to six miles of 161-kilovolt transmission line that would go south from TVA's existing Nickajack-Raccoon Mountain 161-kilovolt transmission line to Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative's new substation, which is located off East 10th Street on the former National Guard Armory property in South Pittsburg, Tenn.

Several routes are being considered by TVA.

An open house for input will be held April 25 from 3 to 7 p.m. (CDT) at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 306 Fifth St., South Pittsburg, Tenn.

Those wanting to provide comments can do so by contacting TVA's Chris Columber toll free at 800-362-4355, by email at newtransline@tva.com or by mail to: Chris Columber, Tennessee Valley Authority, 1101 Market St., MR 4G, Chattanooga, TN, 37402-2801. May 28 is the deadline to get in comments.
