Public Hearing: Coal Ash Closure at Gadsden Steam Plant

Read Time 1 Minutes

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is hosting a public hearing about Plant Gadsden’s coal ash on November 10th at the Beck Conference Center- Gadsden State Community College.
ADEM’s hearing focuses on Alabama Power’s closure plans for coal ash waste storage in a massive unlined, leaking pit sitting next to Neely Henry Lake on the Coosa River. This closure is required by federal law because their coal ash pit is situated too close to groundwater, which is being polluted with arsenic and other heavy metals. Alabama Power plans to leave their toxic coal ash next to the river and cap it in place.
