The Illinois EPA has declined to hold a hearing on a proposal that could leave 3.3 million cubic yards of toxic coal ash on the banks of the Middle Fork. So we will!
The success of the campaign require Dynegy to move its coal ash out of the floodplain will depend on the number of businesses, faith leaders, elected officials, service groups, and residents who take action. Click for essential tools that will help build support through awareness and education; media; and advocacy.
If just 1% of Dynegy’s coal ash entered the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River, it would be comparable to the Duke Energy’s 2014 Dan River spill that sent coal ash 70 miles downstream. Don’t wait for another disaster to happen! Get involved.
