Susan Hubley sends word that the new gas-fired power plant will
be built in Rogersville and not Phipps Bend.  I was not aware of
that and thought the Phipps Bend site had finally been chosen.
Sorry for my bad information.  We now have a longer future to
monitor the wader ponds than I had posted.  Thanks Susan for
your good and timely news.

Enjoyed your post.
The new gas-fired plant is being built adjacent to the John Sevier 
Fossil Plant. TVA is working with Spectra Energy to locate a new natural 
gas line to the Holston River site near Rogersville.

ROGERSVILLE - Rumors became reality Friday as Tennessee Valley Authority 
officials announced a new 880-megawatt combined-cycle gas plant will be located 
adjacent to the existing John Sevier Fossil Plant. 
    The location was chosen following transmission and gas line studies and is 
pending the final plant design, review under the National Environmental Policy 
Act, and environmental permitting.
    TVA is working with Spectra Energy Partners to evaluate an expansion from 
its East Tennessee Natural Gas System interstate pipeline to TVA's John Sevier 
property.  The ETNG pipeline system operates through the states of Tennessee, 
Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.
    The combined-cycle plant construction was approved by the TVA Board in June 
2009 after the U.S. District Court in western North Carolina set an accelerated 
timeline for installing new emission controls for the John Sevier plant.
