TVA seeking comment on dry ash landfill near Bull Run
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Valley Authority is seeking public comment on plans for a new dry ash storage landfill next to the Bull Run Fossil Plant in Anderson County.
TVA’s long-range plans include converting the handling of coal combustion residuals from a wet system to a dry system at Bull Run and elsewhere.
The draft environmental impact statement is available at http://www.tva.com/nepa . The utility will accept written comments electronically and by mail until July 12.
TVA says the project isn’t related to a proposal for coal combustion residual impoundment closures at Bull Run and nine other sites announced earlier this year.
TVA is the nation’s largest public utility, serving more than 9 million people in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
