Expiration date: 8/16/2019

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District (USACE) has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and unsigned Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) to assess impacts of a proposed land disposal needed to construct a flood risk reduction levee at the A.O. Smith Plant in Ashland City, TN.  The Ashland City Plant has experienced multiple flood events in the past, and A.O. Smith wishes to construct a levee to manage risk from future flood events.  The proposed project consists of disposal of seven tracts of USACE land totaling approximately 9.19 acres and will address both the initial encroachment of current facilities and the disposal of additional lands for the levee project.
