The Environmental Protection Agency announced a sweeping settlement Thursday with the Tennessee Valley Authority over pollution from 11 coal-fired power plants in at least three states. The agreement requires the TVA to shut down many of its coal-fired boilers and invest an estimated $3 billion to $5 billion on new and upgraded pollution controls.
