The Kingston Coal Ash Disaster took place on December 22, 2008, when one billion gallons of coal ash from TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant spilled into the Clinch and Emory Rivers. Workers responded in the middle of the night to begin cleaning up the spill, which was the largest industrial disaster in US history.
This website was created to honor the hundreds of workers, more than 60 of whom have died, that were denied protective gear and became sickened from cleaning up the toxic coal ash. The information here is also meant to be preventative. No other workers or communities should suffer from the atrocities committed against the Kingston workers.
