Five years after the ash spill, the area around TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant still remains an active construction site.
“I would estimate we are about 85 percent complete,” said Craig Zeller, the project manager for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which is overseeing the cleanup.
Work is expected to continue well into next year.
“The bulk of the ash recovery project should be completed a year from now,” Zeller said. “We may have some minor loose ends to tie up, perhaps into February 2015.”
