Fellow Waterkeepers Visit Coal Ash Spill in TN

On December 22, 2008 5.4 million cubic yards of toxic coal ash broke through an unregulated dam at the Kingston Coal Power Plant in Harriman, TN. Ten years of toxic sludge covered nearly 300 acres of land and water, causing substantial damage to the surrounding areas. The toxic sludge polluted both the Emory and the Clinch Rivers, immediately causing a massive fish kill. Waterkeeper was on the scene of the spill days after it happened and managed to take the footage below.
