Utility restorations continues
Utility restorations continue along Hassler Mill Road to the Spring House, along U.S. 70 between I-40 and U.S. 70, along Swan Pond Circle Road, and from Hassler Mill to Frost Hollow Road. Work to build a construction road for heavy equipment that will be used for utility restoration began this week along the hillside, parallel to the railroad tracks, across from the north entrance to the recovery project site This work will not impact travel. All utility restoration work is on track to be finished early this summer.
Dredge Plan Addendum-Completion of Time Critical Removal Action
The approved Dredge Plan Addendum is now available on the TVA Kingston website. On March 5, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) On-Scene Coordinator (OSC) issued a memorandum documenting the final dredge depth defined by the time-critical removal action. The three primary purposes of the addendum are to (a) document the objectives of the time-critical removal action and define the completion of the action in the river and the embayments east of Dike 2, (b) provide a decision-making process for reaching agreement where no further time-critical action is required or where the time-critical removal is complete, and (c) describe the ash removal operations including the remaining tasks, equipment, and schedule required to complete the time-critical removal action in the Emory River and east of Dike 2.
