BUILD A 1/3-MILE LONG WALL TO PROTECT YOUR COAL ASH?
WE SAY NO! DYNEGY ... MOVE YOUR ASH!!
Dynegy is proposing to build a 1/3-mile long rock wall next to its two leaking coal ash pits to protect its toxic waste from the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River, which is moving west towards those pits.
Dynegy's massive riverbank stabilization project will have real impacts to the Middle Fork, including water quality; scenic value; and recreational uses. But the Illinois EPA, Bureau of Water, already has made a preliminary determination that they will approve Dynegy’s plan.
WE NEED YOU TO ATTEND THE HEARING TO SAY NO
Agency representatives need to hear from you! The only REAL solution is to remove the coal ash from the river's floodplain and place it in a lined facility where it no longer will be in contact with the groundwater There are other alternatives available that would temporarily protect the eroding riverbanks, but not harm the river.
