KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Valley Authority’s Regional Resource Stewardship Council will meet Monday and Tuesday in Knoxville to review TVA’s natural resource activities and partnerships.

The 20-member council will receive updates on TVA’s stewardship initiatives, floating houses, dam projects and encroachment management.

The two-day meeting will be open to the public and held at TVA’s headquarters. The council will meet on Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT and on Tuesday from 8 to 11:45 a.m. A public comment session is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

The council was created in 1999 by the TVA board of directors to gain stakeholder input in the decisions TVA makes about managing the river and its ecosystem.

TVA supplies power to about 9 million people in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
