Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is amending its June 7, 2018 Record of Decision (ROD) for the Cumberland Fossil Plant Coal Combustion Residuals Management Operations Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The 2018 ROD indicated TVA's intent to construct and operate a bottom ash dewatering facility, process water basins, and an onsite landfill at the Cumberland Fossil Plant (CUF). During the design and permitting process, limitations were encountered which required a shift in the onsite landfill's location. Additionally, TVA proposes to use the future onsite landfill as a repository for both existing and future CCR, rather than using the existing Fly Ash Stack as the storage facility for existing CCR. In August 2019, TVA completed a supplemental review, analyzing the potential impacts of the proposed landfill shift. This amended ROD incorporates TVA's decisions relating to the modifications.
