TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant will test its ammonia warning alarm system on Wednesday, May 11, at about 11:15 a.m. 

The test will be announced over the plant’s public-address system, and a siren will sound for three to five minutes.

The public should not be concerned if they are near the plant at this time and hear the siren. 

Notice of the alarm system test has been posted in local newspapers.

This alarm system is used to alert employees and nearby residents in the event of an ammonia release and has been in place since the ammonia tanks were installed.  TVA tests the system periodically to make sure it will work as designed if needed.
