NEW COAL ASH REGULATIONS
as of September 30, 2015
On September 30, 2015, the EPA finalized a rule revising the regulations for the Steam Electric Power Generating category. The rule sets the first federal limits on the levels of toxic metals in wastewater that can be discharged from power plants, based on technology improvements in the steam electric power industry over the last three decades. Read more here.
Alabama Rivers Alliance is carefully reviewing the new rule and will offer our analysis soon.
In the meantime, please take a look at these documents outlining the many problems with Coal Ash throughout Alabama.
For more information, please contact Mitch Reid at email@example.com.
The Alabama Rivers Alliance is Alabama's statewide, nonprofit, water protection organization.
Networking over fifty grassroots water protection organizations across Alabama at the local level and advocating smart planning and reasonable laws at the state level, we work to ensure healthy waters for future generations by empowering the citizens of Alabama to protect our waterways.
