Small ammonia leak reported, contained at Kingston Steam Plant

Posted:
KINGSTON (WATE) - One person suffered minor injuries Tuesday morning after a small ammonia leak at the TVA Kingston Steam Plant.

TVA officials say employees were doing maintenance on a liquid ammonia valve in a facility away from the main plant when a very small amount of ammonia was released.

The release caused the ammonia suppression system to activate and an alarm to sound. Officials say the release lasted a very short time.

One person had a minor injury related to the incident. Operations at the plant were back to normal by late Tuesday morning.
