TVA fined

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is charging Tennessee Valley Authority with a $450,000 civil penalty for violating the Clean Air Act at the Widows Creek Fossil Plant in northeast Alabama.

The EPA said in an email statement that TVA has agreed to pay the penalty to resolve allegations related to emissions of SO2 and Nox from the coal-fired plant.

TVA spokeswoman Barbara Martocci said the emissions occurred in 2003 and were traced to problems with ducts when TVA installed a system to reduce emissions. Martocci said all the duct work was replaced in 2005.
