TVA is considering improvements to its transmission system that would provide power for growing load and increase power reliability in Henderson and Chester Counties in Tennessee.

The line also has three customer connections, and any outages would lead to significant load not served. The portion of line between Bud Crockett and North Lexington consists of older, wooden poles, and an unplanned pole replacement would result in a 24-hour outage.

    We need a much more detailed map. We live in the Cherokee Subdivision across Hwy 22 from Save A Lot. We are very CONCERNED about how close these lines may come to our home on Chaseland Cove. High Voltage Lines are a HEALTH HAZARD for people living near them, INCREASEING the RISK of CANCER and other Health Issues. In addition, such a near by risk would DIMINISH property values. SURELY there is a way to AVOID these problems. PLEASE respond. THANK YOU.

    Why wouldn’t TVA be proposing a bigger power line…it’s more money in their greedy pockets. Instead we should be proposing LESS consumption of power and reducing our constant need for more, more, more.
