TVA still owns the tributaries that lead to the river....
You are correct bpqd!! TVA contracts will not allow this to happen.
I feel safe living close to Sequoyah Nuclear Plant and I like my power cheap!!
Tennessee will never let Atlanta have our river(thank goodness)!!
All TVA Nuclear Plants have an automatic shut off sytem during emergencies.
Do not worry mountain girl...no tsunamis, no dam breaks and no earthquakes...we are safe ;-)
I pray for the people in Japan right now. They are going through the most catastrophic event in their lifetime. Please pray for each hungry, cold and lost person right now. Have a good night and be thankful we are in a good place.
I agree to jsgood35, nucanuck and bill2. We are in no threat of tsunami's or floods and I'm still not worried about the nuclear plants.
Thanks bill2 for your technical comments to mountain girl. We are just trying to make people realize that our area is a lot safer than Japan. This country (which is an island set on the ring-of-fire) has huge earthquakes all of the time. Please don't be afraid of living here or around nuclear plants.
Hey mountain girl: Get your head out of the sand; there will be not 30-40 waves from this river. We are in no way in any danger, and like I said we are way better off with Nuclear Generation than wind or solar. If you don't like living close to a nuclear plant then move......not trying to be doom and gloom :-)
