Ponds aren’t always the final resting place for gypsum produced at TVA’s coal-fired power plants.
John Kammeyer, TVA’s vice president of coal combustion products, said the gypsum produced at the Cumberland Fossil Plant is sold and used to make wallboard.
“Here at Kingston, it’s being pumped out to this big pond,” Kammeyer said.
That was before the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation ordered TVA to stop using the gypsum pond.
A leak was discovered in the pond on Dec. 15.
