For anyone in the Nashville or Gallatin, Tennessee area, or anyone concerned about coal ash in their community.
On March 25th 2015, Statewide Organizing for Community eMpowerment (SOCM), Sierra Club Tennessee Chapter, Climate Nashville, Ecogal – The Curious Consumer, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Working Films will host a free, open community discussion on the continuing impact of Tennessee Valley Authority’s coal ash landfill at the Gallatin Fossil Plant, the recent lawsuit filed by the state against TVA, and what it means for the future of the Gallatin community.
What’s up with Gallatin?
TVA’s Gallatin Fossil Plant sits on the north bank of the Cumberland River, about 30 miles northeast of Nashville. Its four coal-fired generating units burn about 12,350 tons of coal a day. The main residue from that process – 230,000 dry tons of coal ash per year – is stored in a coal ash pond complex north of the plant.
