A routine inspection of the gypsum pond at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Kingston Fossil Plant on Wednesday discovered clear water seeping from a single area on the side of the facility.
Maintenance work is underway to stop the seepage, according to a TVA news release. Emergency officials and Roane COunty Executive Ron Woody were notified.
Gypsum is a limestone product resulting from pollution-control processes. The seepage poses no hazard.
