What are the positive and and negative effects of the Tennessee Valley Authority? (TVA)?

My teacher gave me the essay prompt from the day I was sick and I have never heard of this TVA. I have to write two pages over it but my textbook barely mentions it and doesn t dare go into details. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The TVA was an agency that came into effect during the depression and put people to work on public works projects, mainly water projects.

    The project put people to work, created hydro-electric power plants, and drained swamplands. They also displaced people from their lands in order to build thep rojects.
