Alabama Environmental Groups Agree…

Coal ash should be dug up and moved because it is polluting Alabama’s waters. As much as possible should be recycled into concrete and the rest should be moved to upland, lined landfills using the best available technology standards, ensuring all people, communities and businesses of Alabama are out of harm’s way.

Coal ash is the toxic waste that remains after coal is burned. It contains high concentrations of heavy metals, including mercury, arsenic, selenium, chromium, and lead which are hazardous to human health, wildlife, and waterways near coal ash pits.
