EPA's coal plant proposal puts DC at risk
from E&E News
EPA's proposed regulation for coal plant wastewater ignores pleas from drinking water utilities to prevent a cancer-causing chemical from being released into the nation's waterways. The decision against limiting bromide discharges affects the drinking water supply of EPA employees who wrote the so-called effluent limitation guidelines. Washington, D.C.'s sole source for drinking water is the Potomac River, with an intake located roughly 30 miles downstream of a coal-fired power plant that has previously been scrutinized for its releases of the chemical.
