The EPA wants you (to comment on coal waste impoundments)!

Today is the last day for public comments on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed coal ash regulations, which will have an impact on communities as far away as Hazard, Kentucky and as close as the Rubbertown neighborhood of this fair (and polluted) River City.

If you haven’t already, click here to give your two cents about the toxic substances that large, impersonal energy companies want you to get intimate with so your utility bills (and not your medical ones) remain low.

For a brief, local, LEO Weekly-sanctioned primer on the issue, click here.

    Thank you. By the way, is LEO going to do a story on the actual toxic spill that occurred earlier this month that came in the form of 4 million gallons of human feces being spilled into the river by MSD? Seems like coming into contact with that could be just as dangerous as ash.
