TWF CEO Mike Butler testified in Washington, D.C. before a House subcommittee in early October on the regulation of unregistered floating structures moored on public reservoirs managed by TVA. Of the 1,800 floating houses on those lakes, more than half are illegal, and it is unknown whether they were built to code or are handling sewer and electrical service in an appropriate manner. TVA is working to develop a policy to manage these structures moving forward. At the Congressional hearing, Butler was asked to represent the interests of Tennessee’s wildlife, habitat, and the people who use our public outdoor resources.
