Got an e-mail this morning from "Keep The Ban" about a meeting with EPA over the coal ash leak in Eden, NC that has polluted the Dan River and environs, including drinking water of municipalities downstream.
It's been diaried a fair amount here on the GOS. There are more, I only searched "coal ash" to point to the diaries for those who may be unaware.
