Coal-fired power plant in Mississippi top 10 in nation for contamination, report says
from Hattiesburg American
An environmental report released this month names a Pine Belt coal-fired power plant as one of the top 10 sites in the country with the worst coal ash contamination of groundwater. But officials at the R.D. Morrow Sr. Generating Station say there is no risk to humans and emphasize the groundwater is not a source of drinking water. The information in the report is new — it's the first time it's been readily available to the public thanks to a recent federal law that requires coal plants to do more in-depth reporting.
