    The EPA, the U.S. Department of Energy, and programs from each state all monitor emissions from coal plants. The EPA monitors coal emissions according to the provisions of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act. State programs often regulate coal plants according to the aforementioned laws in addition to having their own programs. The U.S. Department of Energy provides research funds to study coal plants and cleaner technologies for them. These programs mainly monitor fly ash, which can contain radioactive particles.
