A Roane County man took a wild ride when his home was pushed off its foundation and into the road by a wall of sludge from a TVA containment pond.

That Swan Pond area home near TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant was one of about a dozen residences that were inundated with a thick sludge from a fly ash retention  pond that collapsed just before 1 a.m. Monday.

It was a rude awakening on a night where temperatures dropped to 11 degrees.
