Kingston Dry Fly Ash Conversion
Roane County, Tennessee
In July 2009, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors passed a resolution to review and address the systems, controls, and standards related to coal combustion products (CCPs; e.g., fly ash, bottom ash, and gypsum), which result from the burning of coal to produce electricity. TVA has subsequently reviewed its practices for handling and storing CCPs at its generating facilities, including its coal-fired Kingston Fossil Plant (KIF). The current proposal to convert the wet fly ash handling and storage facilities at KIF to a dry fly ash handling system is an outcome of that review.
On June 18, 2010, TVA completed its final environmental assessment (EA) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) on the proposal to install and operate a dry fly ash collection system at the Kingston Fossil Plant. Both of these documents may be viewed online by accessing the links below.
A draft of this EA was released for public comment in March 2010. The final EA incorporates responses to the comments received on the draft.
