September Ash Pond Newsletter

Posted on October 31, 2019

The following is a collection of ash pond news from September. The intent of the newsletter is to summarize news regarding ash pond closure activities, lawsuits filed against utilities relating to their ash ponds, as well as regulatory changes impacting ash pond operations or closures.

This month, we focus on ash pond breaches, coal power plant ash pond closures and modifications in Illinois, and contamination resulting from power plants.
