Sludge Update

TVA Rep to Update MLGW On Sludge Disaster

Gary Harris, general manager of customer service for the Tennessee Valley Authority for West Tennessee, is scheduled to give Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division officials an update today related to an environmental accident that happened in East Tennessee in December.

Harris will brief MLGW officials on the aftermath of the collapse of a retention pond wall at the TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant in East Tennessee west of Knoxville. The accident released 1.1 billion gallons of sludge into the surrounding area, according to press accounts.

The presentation is relevant to MLGW because it is the TVA’s largest distributor and purchases about 11 percent of TVA’s power, according to information from Shelby County.

Harris will make his presentation today during the President’s Briefing at 1:30 p.m. in the boardroom of the MLGW Administration Building, 220 S. Main St. The MLGW board meeting will follow at 3 p.m. in the same location.
