by Johnson, Keri Renee, M.En., Miami University, 2003, 154; 10817944
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this report is to describe my responsibilities and participation in projects during my six-month internship, June 3, 2002 to December 3, 2002, with the Tennessee Valley Authority. For the first ten weeks, I interned with TVA through the sponsoring internship organization Joint Institute of Energy and the Environment / Southern Appalachian Man and Biosphere Program (JIEE/SAMAB) which focused on environmental decision-making. I hosted a seminar as well as participated in each intern’s seminar. Following the ten week internship, I interned directly through TVA to finish the remainder of the six months. My responsibilities at TVA included producing a Valley-wide overview of TVA’s watershed water quality activities in the Tennessee Valley Basin, exploring and evaluating potential benchmarks to compare water quality in the Tennessee Valley region to another region, and assisting in the watershed water quality planning process. I was exposed to various activities and issues associated with project/middle management.
