TVA is responsible for the cleanup and no whitewashing of the situation should be allowed. TVA fleeces the struggling public with their increased rates while rewarding executives with large bonuses. The bottom line is greed and profit and if they are not forced to do proper environmental cleanup, they will hire those who will support their findings in regards to health and safety.

I don't much care for her but NES needs to be held accountable for their stupidity and neglect and her star power may bring their corruption and ineptitude into the light of day.

And NES should not plan on passing the CLEAN UP bill on to their customers as they have stated they will!!! That is outrageous!!

I wonder how much TVA pays Kingston City Council. Their land will not be worth anything and they will still be living on poison land after all is said and done. But The Kingtson City Council says we'll take care of you - right!
