For more than a year TVA, has been using trains to ship ash to a landfill in Alabama.
That could end soon.
“Shipping of time-critical ash will end in early December,” TVA said in an e-mail to members of the Roane County Community Advisory Group.
TVA plans to have a site luncheon to mark the end of the train shipments, which are part of the agency’s effort to clean up the mess caused by the Dec. 22, 2008, disaster at the Kingston Fossil Plant.
A lot of the ash that was released during the disaster ended up in the Emory River.
