The Tennessee Oversight Agreement (TOA) is a voluntarily agreement entered into between the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the State of Tennessee (State). This Agreement reflects an extension of the Agreement between the DOE and the State executed on May 13, 1991, and continues to reflect the obligations and agreements regarding DOE's technical and financial support.
The TOA is designed to assure the citizens of Tennessee that their health, safety and environment are being protected through existing programs and substantial new commitments by DOE. Through a program of independent monitoring and oversight, the State will advise and assist to assure that DOE's activities do not adversely impact the public health, safety and the environment. DOE and the State, in a spirit of partnership and cooperation, agree to find ways to achieve clean air, water and land in concert with sustainable economic growth.
