Watershed: The Tennessee River

Jeff Rich

This project began on December 22, 2008. The failure of a containment pond dyke spilled 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash belonging to the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) Kingston Fossil Plant into the Emory River and its surrounding landscape. What led to this point?Jeff Rich investigates the river itself and the TVA's vast reach and power throughout the region. It has forever changed the environment of its watershed that is in every way at odds with the natural evolution and ecology of the Tennessee River system.
