Toxic Coal Ash Dumps Uncovered In 10 States

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

As Congress mulls deregulating toxic coal ash, 20 toxic coal ash dumps have been uncovered in 10 states. The dumps, discovered by the nonprofit Environmental Integrity Project (EIP), have contaminated groundwater and soil. At the same time, some members of Congress are seeking more leniency on federal oversight of toxic coal ash pollution cleanup and are asking that authority be eliminated that currently ensures compliance with significant standards. The 20 new sites identified in the report are: • Illinois (7): Dallman Power Station, Joliet Station, Joppa Plant, Meredosia Power Station, Pearl Station, Powerton Station, and Waukegan Station. • South Carolina (3): Cross Station, McMeekin Station, and Winyah Station. • Iowa (2): Fair Station and Prairie Creek Generating Station. • Texas (2): Coleto Creek Station and W.A. Parish Station. • Florida (1): Plant Crist. • Georgia (1): Plant Yates. • Indiana (1): Soil at an urban

rail trail in Bloomington. • Kentucky (1): Paradise Fossil Plant. • Nevada (1): North Valmy Station. • Tennessee: (1) Allen Fossil Plant. Of these, 19 have groundwater contaminated with arsenic or other toxic metals that exceed at least one Safe Drinking Water Act Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) and other standards. Arsenic was measured above the MCL of 10 parts per billion (PPB) at 14 sites, with concentrations exceeding 10 times the standard at the Winyah, Meredosia, Parish, and North Valmy. Lead, chromium, or selenium exceeded standards by multiple times in groundwater at several sites including at McMeekin, Plant Yates, Fair Station, Coleto, and Parish Stations. All 19 sites with water contamination had measured concentrations of toxic pollutants other than arsenic and other primary drinking water metals, including boron, molybdenum, manganese, and nickel; all above U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended limits. Some pollutants were many times over permissible levels: Manganese was 203 times the lifetime health advisory at Paradise Station, molybdenum was 21 times the lifetime health advisory at Parish Station, and boron was more than 12 times the child health advisory at Prairie Creek Station and 10 times more at Meredosia Station. Since just last year, the EIP also identified 90 coal ash ponds and landfills with groundwater contamination that have been ignored in EPA reports and another Indiana site has contaminated soil along a rail trail with arsenic 900 times the federal screening levels for site cleanups. Jeff Stant, director, Coal Combustion Waste Initiative, Environmental Integrity Project, that “The 67 cases of coal ash water contamination identified by the EPA and the additional body 90 toxic sites found by EIP all point to one clear conclusion: Those in Congress who think this threat to groundwater and drinking water should go unmonitored, unpoliced, and unaddressed are dead wrong. We already have here a clear and present danger to America’s public health; it is no solution for Congress to hand authority for addressing the problem permanently to states that have refused to enforce common-sense standards for the past 30 years and hope that the whole problem then somehow goes away.” The EIP released a letter to Congress signed by thousands of residents who live in 27 states and near coal ash dump sites in which the residents are, essentially, begging for appropriate federal oversight.
