TVA, Cancels Plans for Flood Control in County, Western North Carolina

Record #:
Despite the appropriation of funds, TVA announced it will discontinue plans to plans to build a system of 14 dams and reservoirs along the Upper French Broad River basin in Western North Carolina. Although TVA believed the plans’ aims to provide local economic benefits would be successful in the long term, the communities of the affected counties were no longer supportive at all levels.
