TVA officials estimate 3 million yards of fly ash is in the Emory River.
The process to remove it began Thursday with the start of dredging operations. The goal is to get the ash back on TVA land.
Officials with the utility company are expressing confidence the plan will be a success.
“We know that the dredging in the river will absolutely get it all out,” ash spill incident commander Tim Hope said.
