Coal ash: In our back yard and beyond
Coal ash, the toxic waste left when coal is burned for electricity, threatens communities and precious water resources across North Carolina and the Southeast. In the absence of federal regulations, utilities dump coal ash in massive unlined lagoons next to waterways and neighborhoods. This presentation by Joan Walker of Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and Anna Jane Joyner of Western North Carolina Alliance will get you up to speed on the current landscape of coal ash in the Southeast, the status of long-awaited federal regulations, and how citizens are using the courts to protect communities and waterways from this toxic threat—including right here in Asheville on the French Broad River.
