I truly believe @BWRiverkeeper on twitter says it best, "Alabama needs a state coal ash program designed to protect people, water, land, and wildlife, and not the power companies and landfill owners."

We live in a country and state that can value profits over public health & it's time for change.  According to Black Warrior River Keeper, pollution from coal ash disposal facilities affects groundwater, and therefore nearby drinking water wells (as proven by a study conducted near facilities in North Carolina), and streams, rivers, and lakes where Alabamians enjoy swimming, fishing, and boating.  The state should be doing more, not less, to protect us from these unseen toxic contaminants.
