The release of over 5 million cubic yards of coal ash from the Tennessee Valley Authority's Kingston, Tennessee, facility in December 2008 serves as an important reminder of the need for our continued diligence on disposal units where coal combustion wastes are managed. The coal ash from the facility flooded more than 300 acres of land, damaging homes and property. It is critical that we all work to the best of our abilities to prevent a similar catastrophic failure and resultant environmental damage. One of the first steps in this effort is to assess the stability of the impoundments and similar units that contain coal combustion residuals and by-products to determine if and where corrective measures may be needed and then to carry out those measures as expeditiously as possible. This report for the Havana Power Plant facility assesses the stability of the following management units. This evaluation is based on a site assessment conducted on May 27, 2009 by Cleighton Smith, PE and Lauren Ohotzke, Civil Engineer of Dewberry.
