Emory River No-wake Zone Reduced
We received concurrence from EPA late yesterday on the reduced no-wake zone.  Effective immediately, the posted no-wake zone in the Emory River, previously posted from Emory River Mile (ERM) 1.7 to 2.8, has been reduced to ERM 1.8 to 2.1.  While the boom has been removed, the no-wake buoys in this zone will not be removed until Monday. 

Some work continues at the Kingston Fossil Plant intake channel adjacent to the main channel and the work zone is boomed off.  The public will not be allowed in this work zone.

These changes will be posted at local marinas and boat ramps and on the TVA Kingston Website today and an ad announcing the reduced no-wake zone will appear in local newspapers next Wednesday, September 1, 2010.  A copy of the ad is attached.

If you have any questions, please call Katie Kline or me at 717-1645.
