Creation Date



The disaster that we decided to talk about for this project is the Kingston Fossil Plant Slurry Spill. We decided to write about this disaster because when the plant was first built it powered approximately 700,000 homes and burned 14,000 tons of coal a day, and this plant is a great example what could happen to any large plant if not aware of the environment hazards and conditions. The Kingston Fossil Plant was in Kingston, Tennessee. The plant was located on the Watts Bar Reservoir on the Tennessee River. This was the nation's largest coal ash spill in history.
