TVA Spokesperson Barbara Martocci on the Ocoee sediment:

"It's just what's on the river bottom. It's the same thing that's on any river bottom."

The Ocoee sediment consists of copper mine runoff. It is anything but the same stuff that's on the bottom of any river. It's an unnatural orange brown color and smells. TVA spokepeople have a tough job to do.. The public simply doesn't trust them. This is why.

The KNS now has it. Although I must say, this reporting seems pretty weak.

BTW, Randy, has TVA talked with you yet?
