EPA seeks Public Comment regarding Clean-up at Kingston, [Roane County] TN - TVA

EPA News Release by Date, January 19, 2010, Contact: Davina Marraccini (404) 562-8293, marraccini.davina@epa.gov


"Engineering Evaluation and Cost Analysis for Non-Time-Critical Cleanup Alternatives for Restoration of the TVA Kingston Site Released for Public Comment"

This is a time the public...all public can have input by making comments for the proposed 'alternatives' for restoration that must be made by TVA.

The cost analysis is being used as a guide as to what is affordable, and necessary. Engineers have calculated the "cost" of restoring Swan Pond embayment area impacted by spilled fly ash.

Hmmm...Our whole eco-system was impacted by the spilled fly ash during the failure of holding ponds, December 22, 2008. If this is a concern of yours, check out the MSDS* for toxins spilled in that disaster.
 It will take public outcry and vigilance to make sure this is not swept under the rug. I have heard scientists say the environmental damage from this spill was many times worse than the Exxon-Valdez spill, and it is all so quiet.

Please, get involved, find out what is being proposed, and make your comment to the party who is responsible for the spill...
