Dynegy’s Coal Ash Threat – VCCD

18 May, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

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 Vermilion County Conservation District and ask board members to support the campaign to require Dynegy to move its coal ash out of the floodplain.

Wednesday, Ma 18, 2016
4:30pm to 5:30pm
Kennekuk Environmental Education Center
Kennekuk County Park
22296 Henning Rd, Danville, IL 61834
