But I thought coal ash was safe?

Cane Run Road resident and citizen environmental regulator Greg Walker snapped the following pic Saturday morning of LG&E’s sludge processing plant at their coal ash landfill:

Wait a second…. is that a… hazmat suit?

How many times has LG&E said that the arsenic, beryllium, boron, cadmium, chromium, chromium VI, cobalt, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, selenium, strontium, thallium and vanadium, along with dioxins and PAH compounds in coal ash that blows over onto people’s houses is perfectly safe?

Perhaps LG&E will provide complimentary hazmat suits to the elderly and children who live across the street from them and breathe in that stuff. That’s what good neighbors do.

    The plant manager during a meeting last summer said that they were exposed more often than any of the neighbors. Completely safe he said. Hmm, must have changed their minds, and I know that they’re ordering up hazmat suits for all of us over here on Cane Run because that would be the neighborly thing to do.
