The Tennessee Valley Authority has been fined $450,000 as a civil penalty for violating the Clean Air Act at the Widows Creek Fossil Plant in northeast Alabama. In a statement, the EPA said TVA agreed to the penalty to resolve allegations related to emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide. The emissions happened in 2003 and were traced to problems with ducts when TVA installed a system to reduce emissions. Martocci said all the duct work was replaced in 2005.
