Nothing to worry about. That was the U.S. Department of Energy’s conclusion about Clinch River soil in a local resident’s yard.

Scott Boyes wanted the soil removed from the front yard at his Walton Road home because it came from the Clinch River.
Koentop said the river has DOE contaminants from legacy operations years and years ago.
