TVA must install liner at leaking pond | Chattanooga Times Free Press

A state order against TVA will idle the Kingston Fossil Plant’s new $456 million air scrubber until the utility drains and relines the 1-year-old gypsum waste pond that sprang a leak last week.

The leak, discovered Wednesday — exactly one week before the 2-year anniversary of TVA’s 1.2 million-gallon coal ash spill at the same Harriman, Tenn., plant — sent a shock wave through the community.

“Are we really safe? Really?” said Sarah McCoin, a resident of the Swan Pond community where TVA still has about 500 million gallons of ash to clean up.
