U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Varlan has approved an agreement by the Tennessee Valley Authority to pay $27.8 million to settle claims from more than 800 property owners who suffered damages from 2008ís coal ash spill. Varlan had ruled 2 years ago that TVA was liable for the spill, which happened when a containment dike burst at the TVAís Kingston Fossil Plant. More than 5 million cubic yards of ash was released from a storage pond, causing damage to hundreds of acres as the sludge flowed into the river.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is eliminating more than 2,000 jobs- the agency's largest in more than two decades- as part of a $500 million cost-cutting campaign. Officials with the utility say they are making the cuts this year to pare expenses and make electric rates in the Tennessee Valley more competitive with neighboring utilities. Most of the staff reductions are being made by not filling vacant jobs and through retirements and resignations by the end of next month. TVA President Bill Johnson said the voluntary reduction offers were well received and avoided the need for massive firings, although some employees are being laid off.
