Southern Environmentalist Group Urges More Concern for TVA's Neighbors

A regional organization on environmental concerns recommends greater concern for public safety after the sludge dump:
Stephen Smith, executive director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, said officials should more strongly encourage residents to avoid the sludge that surrounds their homes ....

Smith said his group is not trying to create panic, but that federal and state authorities and the TVA should be erring on the side of caution in what he considers the largest coal-ash spill in the eastern U.S.

"I think all three agencies have been irresponsible in not accurately warning citizens," Smith said.
