TVA Kingston Fly Ash Release:
Environmental Studies in Progress – SETAC 2010

TVA organized a special platform session and a complementing poster session on the environmental investigations underway at the Kingston site for the annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) in Portland, OR in November 2010.

The session “TVA Kingston Fly Ash Release: A Case Study in Environmental Investigations of Coal Ash Toxicity,” had 8 speaker presentations and 17 posters presenting results of investigations by researchers from TVA, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, US Army Corps of Engineers, Arcadis, Inc., Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Duke University, Appalachian State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Environmental Standards, Inc. and Restoration Services, Inc.

Abstracts of all presentations are linked below, along with a copy of each of the 8 platform presentations and 14 of the 17 poster presentations.
