Water is Life: Coal Ash with Mobile Baykeeper
On almost all of Alabama’s major river systems lurks a looming threat from billions of tons of coal ash sludge stored in large unlined pits right on the edge of the river. One of the most concerning of all of these pits is the one on Alabama Power’s Plant Barry sitting along the Mobile River right above Mobile Bay and our beautiful Gulf Coast. With hurricanes like Sally slamming the coast and unprecedented flooding events in recent years, we must insist that this toxic sludge, already known to be contaminating ground water and polluting surface water be dealt with properly. Join us Tuesday as we hear more about what coal ash is and what can be done about it from Cade Kistler with Mobile Baykeeper.
