Dynegy’s Coal Ash Threat – Lake Vermilion Water Quality Coalition

28 April, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Protect the Middle Fork from Coal Ash Pollution

The Middle Fork of the Vermilion River is Illinois’ only National Scenic River.  It is threatened by Dynegy’s three coal ash pits that contain 3.3 million cubic yards of coal ash in the floodplain. Two of the three pits are leaking.  The third sits over a mine void. The banks of all three are being eroded by the natural forces of the river, raising concerns over a potential breach.

Pam and Lan Richart, Eco-Justice Collaborative (EJC), will show their video Waiting for Disaster: Coal Ash on the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River to the Lake Vermilion Water Quality Coalition and ask board members to support the campaign to require Dynegy to move its coal ash out of the floodplain.

Thursday, April 28, 2016
8:30am to 9:30pm
Soil and Water Conservation District Office
1905A U.S. Route 150
Danville, IL 61832
