The Tennessee Valley Authority is taking another step to change the way ash and coal products are stored at Kingston Fossil Plant with the addition of a bottom ash dewatering facility.

The decision to build a facility is the result of an Environmental Assessment by TVA that looked at the potential environmental impacts of three alternatives – a no action alternative, which would continue the wet storage of bottom ash in ponds, and two construction options, including the dewatering facility.
