Is coal ash in your zip code?
You can simply type in your zip code to see if coal ash is disposed of in your neighborhood. Or, you can visit the nationwide map and see the dozens upon dozens of coal ash sites across the country.
Following the coal ash spill on Widows Creek near Stevenson, Ala. in early January, Conservation Alabama released a statement calling on Congress, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Tennessee Valley Authority to conduct an exhaustive evaluation of current standards, but also to put into action whatever means necessary to ensure that the citizens of Alabama are not put in harm’s way again.
From the Center for Public Integrity’s coal ash website, it is obvious that this is a nationwide public health threat and demands changes from Congress and EPA.
