The transformation of historic rural and agricultural landscapes
into dense and usually upscale housing developments
is the most widespread adverse impact on
historic structures and their landscapes
- TVA Reservoir Operations Study - Final Programmatic EIS, Cultural Resources 4.18.4

An increase in development would increase impacts on
historic structures and archaeological sites.

- TVA Reservoir Operations Study - Final Programmatic EIS, Cultural Resources 5.18.5

New TVA policy calls for total development of reservoir shorelines.
So much for buffers, water quality, archaeological sites, natural areas, etc.:

"Development often occurs as an indirect result of TVA operations
(recreation and industrial development), impacts on archaeological sites
are indirect because TVA does not undertake these actions specifically.

"Because total development buildout is expected to eventually occur at all reservoirs,
only the rate of adverse impact on historic properties would be affected

- TVA Reservoir Operations Study - Final Programmatic EIS, Cultural Resources 4.18-4 & 5.18-7, may 2004

TODAY: Write your comments on the grossly understated "adverse impact" on
cultural and natural resources of this proposed "total development buildout",
and send by December 28, 2004 to: Chellye Campbell, TVA
