Court sides with greens, finds Obama-era rule weak
from E&E News
A federal court today agreed with environmentalists that some parts of Obama-era regulations governing coal ash disposal weren't stringent enough. The ruling came as the new administration seeks changes to the landmark standards. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit threw out provisions in the Obama rules that allowed unlined and clay-lined impoundments to receive coal ash, as well as an exemption for inactive impoundments at power plants that are no longer producing energy.
