Coal mining harms communities and their environment, and wind, solar, and natural gas continue to outcompete.
Take a minute to fill out a witness slip in support of SB9, Coal Ash Pollution Prevention, and protect Illinois communities from toxic coal ash!
Tell the Illinois Governor, the IEPA, and the IDNR to require Dynegy to move its coal ash out of the floodplain of Illinois’ only National Scenic River!
It’s time to address Illinois’ growing coal ash crisis. Urge your senator and representative to protect Illinois water and communities from toxic coal ash.
90% of Illinois’ reporting coal plants have groundwater contaminated with toxic pollutants such as arsenic, boron, cadmium, chromium, lead and selenium.
Here are three things you can do to ensure Illinois’ only National Scenic River is permanently protected from coal ash pollution and the threat of a coal ash spill.
Tell the Corps to hold a hearing on Dynegy’s plan to armor riverbanks along its ash pits on the Middle Fork. Massive fill and excavation will severely impact the river, including water quality; aquatic life; and recreation.
Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to hold a public hearing on Vistra’s plan to build a massive wall of rock next to two coal ash pits that will harm the Middle Fork.
