TVA Retains J.P. King Auction Company to Sell Kingston Waterfront Properties

TVA Fulfills Commitment to Restoring Area Following 2008 Ash Spill

KINGSTON, TN--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has retained J.P. King Auction Company to sell its Kingston, TN, waterfront properties at public auction. The auction will be held Saturday, July 25, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. EST, on-site rain or shine.

The TVA Board approved the auction company's proposal to conduct a portfolio auction of 62 properties, up to 19 waterfront properties, four water view homes and 39 waterfront lots. The properties will be sold without reserve at absolute auction, meaning all properties will be sold to the highest bidders, regardless of price.

Following the 2008 Kingston ash spill, TVA committed to restoring the area to as good as or better than it was before the spill. The first two years of the recovery project required 24/7 operation of heavy equipment on land and in the Emory River. The sounds of the heavy equipment and the lights needed to support night time activities were audible and visible to nearby property owners. Therefore, TVA purchased these properties along Emory River Road.

As of December 2014, all major construction associated with the recovery and restoration of the Swan Pond area is complete. The landfill is lined and closed and Emory River has returned to pre-spill conditions.

As part of TVA's fulfilling its commitment to restore the area to as good as or better than it was before, TVA plans to auction the homes to restore the area to a neighborhood community.
