Will coal ash pollute water?



  1. 0 Votes

    The EPA has found at least 67 coal ash storage sites in 23 states that are actively damaging drinking water supplies. In a study of 155 sites in 2007, it found that all but 13 either had no liner at all, or an inadequate liner, for protecting the ground water from the leaching of toxic chemicals such as arsenic, lead, boron, selenium, cadmium, and thallium, among others. The report found that unlined coal ash waste ponds pose a cancer risk 900 times above what is defined as acceptable.
