Ocoee Recreational Releases Threatened
Thanks to Charlie Walbridge for posting this to FB. TVA currently proposing 800% increase in fees charged to outfitters for recreational releases. The additional fees would significantly increase outfitter raft trip prices, tank demand, put the outfitters out of business, and thus remove the reason for the current system of recreational releases. This would also devastate the local economy too.
How TVA plans to kill Ocoee rafting
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
