Tennessee Valley Authority Faces Second Lawsuit

Environmental organizations are going past state court and asking a federal judge to settle a dispute about whether coal ash residues are polluting the Cumberland River, the primary source of drinking water for people living in Middle Tennessee. A federal lawsuit was filed accusing the Tennessee Valley Authority of violating the Clean Water Act. It comes on the heels of another suit against TVA filed in January in Davidson County Chancery Court by the state's environmental regulatory agency. In filing the second suit, the environmental organizations are seeking a venue that may take more substantive actions against TVA under federal law provisions. The Southern Environmental Law Center filed the suit on behalf of the Tennessee Clean Water Network and the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association. The organizations had already filed motions to intervene in the state suit before filing the federal suit. An attorney for TVA has described the allegations made by the Southern Environmental Law Center in the state suit as "legally and factually baseless." Coal ash is a byproduct of the Gallatin Fossil Plant, which burns coal to produce electricity. The ash contains mercury, arsenic and other pollutants harmful to people and the environment when found in high concentrations. For years many utilities, including TVA, have stored the material as a wet sludge in unlined storage ponds. TVA has added monitoring wells, stabilized the dikes at Gallatin and regularly submits water quality reports to the state, said John Kammeyer, the engineer in charge of coal combustion products for the Tennessee Valley Authority. Biologists monitor aquatic life in the river for TVA, Kammeyer said, and no problems have been noted. Nor have contaminants from the plant been reported in drinking water systems. Brooks said TVA has committed to converting all of its wet coal ash storage sites to dry storage, a safer way to store the material, a move that could cost as much as $2 billion. But the environmental organizations contend the coal ash ponds are leaking and pose future risks.
