Resident To Push For Stronger Coal Ash Rules

A local resident plans to head to the nation’s capital to speak out against new coal ash rules.

The Environmental Protection Agency is looking at changing the regulations on the disposal of coal combustion residuals from electric utilities.

Bobby Jones with the Down East Community Coal Ash Coalition says he plans to speak at the EPA’s public hearing near Washington D.C. on Tuesday, April 24th.  Jones says Wayne County does not need any weakened regulations for managing coal ash.

The complete details on the EPA’s public hearing can be found here.

The Down East Coal Ash Coalition holds its monthly meeting tonight, Thursday, April 19, at Greenleaf Christian Church at 2110 N. William Street in Goldsboro at 6:30 PM.
