The Tennessee Valley is our home. We care about our neighbors and about protecting our air, land, and water resources.
TVA is committed to serving our communities through our mission of providing low-cost, reliable power, environmental stewardship, and economic development.
This commitment also includes the safe, responsible management of coal combustion residuals (CCR), or what is commonly referred to as coal ash, which is a byproduct of burning coal for electricity.
TVA is pioneering new technology and using the best science, data, and research to ensure our coal ash sites are safe and secure.
TVA’s customized science-based monitoring and management plans for each of its coal ash sites across the Tennessee Valley meet or exceed regulatory requirements set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state regulators.
