One billion gallons of coal waste
January 2, 2009
People living near Kingston, Tennessee
, are understandably concerned and upset
after a coal impoundment spilled a billion gallons of water and coal ash
over hundreds of acres of land and into a river. The EPA is monitoring and reporting
on the water quality in the area, with special concern paid to the arsenic levels in the water in the area.
