TVA shows off plan for park where coal ash spilled

A Tennessee Valley Authority conceptual plan for the area where coal ash spilled from a breach in a holding pond at its Kingston Plant includes ball fields, a walking trail and boat ramps.

A TVA representative involved in the recovery from the December 2008 spill in Roane County's Swan Pond community west of Knoxville described the conceptual proposals to about 100 people at a Tuesday meeting in Kingston.

The Knoxville-based utility is asking for public comment.
