Sierra Club members and volunteers including Will Freiman (right) paddle canoes and kayaks past the TVA's Allen power plant on McKellar Lake as part of an action to draw attention to water pollution issues associated with coal-fired power plants. The demonstrators unfurled banners reading, "Let's Move TVA Beyond Coal" in an effort to highlight the lack of federal regulation necessary to keep McKellar Lake, a body formally designated as impaired by mercury, free of dangerous pollutants.
