Kingston Fossil Plant Structure Razing
Roane County, Tennessee
On June 8, 2011, TVA issued a finding of no significant impact and released a final environmental assessment (FEA) concerning properties TVA purchased near the Kingston Fossil Plant (KIF) ash spill and ash recovery operation areas. These purchases were made as part of TVA’s continuing efforts to address the impacts of the December 2008 spill and cleanup. The property was purchased based on direct impact from the spill or from remediation. TVA has determined that some of the structures on the property need to be removed to meet TVA business needs and to expand the buffer surrounding the KIF Reservation boundary. TVA identified structures as needing to be removed because of building code requirements, TVA needs, habitability issues, or for buffer requirements.
TVA has not made a final determination on the total number of structures to be removed. The FEA considers the removal of the identified 66 homes and associated structures as well as the removal of all structures on the remaining tracts so that all potential impacts can be analyzed. However, TVA plans to retain some of these properties as permanent extensions to the existing plant boundary and has been and is continuing to evaluate potential uses for these sites.
