The TVA Ash Spill Aftermath

Posted by: Skylar In: news

If you’ve been reading the past postings here, you’ll know about the TVA ash spill incident a couple month’s back.  Well, there’s been a lot going on since then, as the Engineering-News Record reports:

TVA says it will likely switch from wet to dry storage at all its coal plants and sell all qualifying ash for use as a cement replacement in ready-mix concrete.

TVA also has filed a detailed dredging plan to begin clearing the Emory River.

I think it’s important to monitor breaking news, but it’s just as important to follow up with the aftermath.  What has been done to fix the issue?  What will prevent this from happening again in the future?  Read the article at ENR to learn more:

You can also read about it straight from the TVA website.
