How do coal ash ponds work?



  1. 0 Votes

    Coal ash ponds are simply dumping sites for the fly ash, bottom ash, coal slag and flue gas desulferization produced as waste by coal-fired power plants. Contaminants from the sites can leach into drinking water and also accumulate in the bodies of fish and wild game, which in turn endangers humans who eat them. Environmental groups have reported that people who live near the worst disposal sites might have a 1-in-50 chance of getting cancer from drinking water contaminated by arsenic.
