Finally the biggest damage to Roane County at the hands of TVA is being addressed: the damage to Roane County's reputation and property values as a result of the ash disaster.

Roane County, Harriman and Kingston have filed a lawsuit against the Tennessee Valley Authority and its prime contractor in the cleanup of the nation’s largest coal ash spill. The lawsuit accuses TVA and Jacobs Engineering of hiding from the public internal records showing a coal ash ingredient list of dangerous toxins, heavy metals and radioactive isotopes; destroying evidence including exposure threat test samples, test results, videos and photographs; tampering with exposure threat testing by watering down monitors designed to warn the public — and the EPA and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation — to lower results; and lying to the public, ratepayers and TVA’s own board of directors about the cleanup and the toxicity of coal ash both at the time of the spill and now.
