During the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rollout of three plans to remediate the 2008 Kingston Fossil Plant dike failure, a fourth option was offered by the public that the remaining ash in that cell be left in place.
Craig Zeller with the EPA, who was representing TVA, originally didn’t think
that was an option.
The EPA/TVA assured by us that the current elevation would never exceed the current permitted elevation.
This Plan 4 was adopted by the EPA/TVA and executed.
While I didn’t agree with the entire plan, I believe this was the right decision.
