The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) has announced a public hearing on Plant Barry’s toxic, leaking coal ash pit. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, March 30th at 6:00 PM at the Hampton Inn in Saraland.
The coal ash pit at Plant Barry holds more than 21 million tons of toxic coal ash — that’s 20 times the volume of the BP Oil Disaster, only this time it’s upstream of the Bay.
Alabama Power’s own monitoring at Plant Barry has found numerous illegal and ongoing groundwater violations, including arsenic levels more than 800% above the legal limit.
Public hearings just like this one turned the tide in other Southeastern states. Now, it’s Alabama’s turn! Will you show up for your economy, community, and way of life?
