Are West Virginia’s waterways contaminated because of all the coal production?



  1. 0 Votes

    Thanks to dirty politics and dirty coal, the mountains of West Virginia have been effectively contaminated with coal runoff. Waterways have had a rush of heavy metals like lead, arsenic, and selenium. The rates of disease sky rocket in these mountain towns, which is already the poorest part of the country. It is as much an economic issue as it is an environmental issue as well. Many believe that coal is the only way for the people of the Appalachian mountains to make a living. Many groups are trying to prove them wrong.
