Plant Miller’s Coal Ash: Public Hearing October 20

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is hosting a public hearing about Plant Miller’s coal ash on October 20th, 6-8pm at West Jefferson Town Hall (7000 West Jefferson Road, Quinton, AL, 35130).

ADEM’s hearing focuses on Alabama Power’s closure plans for coal ash waste storage in a massive unlined, leaking pit next to the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River. This closure is required by federal law because their coal ash pit is situated too close to groundwater, which is being polluted with arsenic and other heavy metals. Alabama Power plans to leave their toxic coal ash next to the river and cap it in place.

Show up and/or submit written comments to share your opinion on the need for Alabama Power to excavate and remove their waste from next to the river:
