TVA Kingston Fly Ash Release:
Environmental Research Symposium 2011

The symposium was held August 2-3, 2011 at Roane State Community College, Harriman, TN, as a forum for scientists and engineers performing current research on coal combustion products, particularly on the Kingston fly ash release.  Symposium objectives were to provide opportunities for TVA fly ash research grant recipients to discuss research plans and present preliminary results, to facilitate exchange of information among fly ash researchers, identify priorities and gaps in current research and technology on impacts of fly ash in the environment and to initiate discussions on long-term monitoring for the Kingston site.

This year’s poster and podium presentations were made by TVA and its contractors (Geosyntec, Jacobs, Restoration Services Inc., Arcadis, and Environmental Standards) as well as researchers from Duke University, Appalachian State University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Iowa State University, North Carolina State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Old Dominion University, University of Colorado, University of Tennessee, Virginia Polytechnic and State University, Stroud Water Research Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the US Army Corps of Engineers--Engineering Research and Development Center (USACE-ERDC) in Vicksburg, MS.

Unlinked presentations will be added to the web site as the presenters grant permissions.
