Site Maps Coal Ash Storage Sites in the Southeastern US

A new map shows where coal ash is stored in the southeastern United States. “The site is populated with data the utilities now are required to provide under the coal-ash rule, along with other publicly available information. Coal ash is the byproduct of burning coal and contains poisonous chemicals such as arsenic, lead and mercury, which are known to cause cancer and neurological disorders.” This one hit home for me, as Duke Energy was fined over $100 million for coal ash spills in North Carolina.
