Vulnerability and Threat Assessment of TVA Locations in North Alabama Region Vulnerability and Threat Assessment of TVA Locations in North Alabama Region Objective The objective of this work in writing is to choose three locations and to complete vulnerability and threat assessments of security in order of priority. The locations chosen for the assessment are those of Wheeler Dam and Wilson Dam in North Alabama and Brown's Ferry Nuclear Plant, also located in the North Alabama area. These facilities are all TVA facilities and as such are all part of the TVA nuclear power production facilities. Browns Ferry specifically is a nuclear producing site that is inclusive of nuclear reactor units.
