Jacobs Engineering was awarded its second option year on the Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) Ash Recovery Project at the Kingston Fossil Plant in Kingston, Tennessee, USA. In 2008 an ash dike ruptured at the solid waste containment area at the TVA's plant releasing approx. 4.2 million cubic metres of coal fly ash slurry.

Pasadena (CA), USA – Jacobs, acting as project manager/construction manager for the project, has provided comprehensive program oversight at the Kingston site since February 2009 after a dike containing coal combustion ash failed, releasing approximately 5.4 million cubic yards (approx. 4.2 million cubic metres) of ash into surrounding waterways and property. Jacobs continues to provide technical assistance to TVA in managing and executing the overall recovery, remediation and disposal of the ash. The option year has a potential value of more than USD 10 million.
