Every year the Muskingum River Plant is responsible for:
In 2009, the Muskingum River Plant was ranked 45th on a list of the 100 most polluting coal plants in the United States in terms of coal combustion waste. Coal combustion waste is a solid waste that is stored in surface impoundments that are susceptible to spilling. Such spilling and flooding would cause a major environmental and health and safety disaster. A study done in 2010 by The Environment Integrity Project, Sierra Club and Earthjustice found that the Muskingum River Plant coal ash waste was significantly contributing to the pollution of Ohio’s groundwater, which could be seriously affecting the safety and quality of the drinking water. To prevent any more illness and death, the Muskingum River Plant should be closed. Closing this plant will prove that people are more important than polluters..Click here to find out more about this plant...
