MARCH 26 HEARING!

Protect the Middle Fork from Dynegy's massive riverbank project. It's time to move the ash.

If approved, a massive riverbank project would allow toxic coal ash to permanently remain in the floodplain of Illinois' only National Scenic River.

HELP PROTECT THE MIDDLE FORK!
The Middle Fork of the Vermilion River is one of the most biologically diverse streams in the Midwest, and the centerpiece of a major recreational area in east-central Illinois.  But a proposal before the Illinois EPA could allow Dynegy-Midwest Generation to leave 3.3 million cubic yards of toxic coal ash in unlined, leaking pits in the river's floodplain.  Other states are requiring utilities to move their ash away from waterways.  Why shouldn't we?
