Kingston Recovery Project

The Office of the Inspector General performed this review as part of its ongoing effort to provide oversight of the Kingston Recovery Project to determine if TVA is meeting its commitments for the Kingston Recovery Project.

Community leaders and regulatory personnel interviewed were satisfied with TVA’s actions to meet its commitments. In order to address these commitments, TVA has taken a number of steps. Specifically, TVA has cleaned up the ash spill and restored the area, protected public health and safety, kept the public and stakeholders informed and involved in the process, and helped with the economic development of Roane County.

Message from the IG

The TVA Office of Inspector General performs a crucial mission by providing independent and objective reporting to the TVA board, the Congress, and other stakeholders. The OIG does this through its audit, evaluation and investigative activities. By statute it is charged with promoting economy and efficiency throughout TVA while preventing and detecting fraud, waste, and abuse affecting TVA. TVA employees, contractors, and the public can help the TVA OIG fulfill its mission and make a difference at TVA by reporting any suspicions about fraud, waste and abuse to the OIG hotline system, known as Empowerline.
