The southern offices of the USDA Forest Service, U.S. Environmental Protectional Agency, U.S. Fish and wildlife Service, and Tennessee Valley Authority charactered SFRA and it has been conducted in collaboration with State agencies represented by the Southern Group of State Foresters and the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wilelife Agencies. the final Assessment reports were issued in November 2002.
