Will Missouri's new coal pollution regulations hold utilities accountable?
from St. Louis Public Radio
For decades, Missouri has not required utilities to check for contamination caused by ponds or install liners to prevent contaminants that could seep from the ponds into the surrounding environment. A bill former Gov. Eric Greitens signed just before he resigned directs the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to develop a plan to regulate coal-ash waste sites. But environmentalists argue that the law is too weak to protect public health and the environment.
