TVA Asking for Comments on Former Sevier Plant Coal Ash Pond Cleanup

The TVA is looking for public comments on a plan to monitor soil and water in and around the former John Sevier Steam Plant coal ash ponds.

The monitoring plan comes from a state environmental order issued back in 2015 to make sure the TVA was abding by the law when it comes to ash disposal.

Public comments are being accepted now through Sept. 7.
