Rocks to be Placed on West Side of Discharge ChannelThe Kingston Fossil Plant will begin routine work to place rocks, also called riprap, on the west side of the discharge channel for erosion control on Monday, August 30, 2010. The area where the work is to be performed is visible from the river. Riprap is made from a variety of rock types, usually granite or limestone, and is used on waterways or water containment areas where there is potential for water erosion.
Mechanical Dredging Complete/New Water Surface Monitoring Plan to be Implemented
The mechanical dredging in the area where Bob Summers Boulevard was located is finished and has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in consultation with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. Bob Summers Boulevard, which has been removed, was built soon after the ash spill to help earth moving equipment reach the east embayment and the north point. With the completion of the mechanical dredging, the Revised Surface Water Monitoring Plan will be implemented on Monday, August 30, 2010.
