EPA rule would force clean-up of toxic coal ash dumped in landfills, ponds near power plants

The Environmental Protection Agency is strengthening a rule aimed at controlling and cleaning up toxic waste from coal-fired power plants. A proposal announced Wednesday would for the first time require safe management of so-called coal ash dumped in hundreds of older landfills, β€œlegacy” ponds and other inactive sites that currently are unregulated at the federal level. https://apnews.com/article/epa-coal-ash-power-toxic-aba5f79702f5460728705544aa41a622

              Perpetrators should be brought to book under the stringent rules without fail.

                Why has it taken too long to control this waste while EPA is mandated to do so ?. EPA has a huge role to play in controlling toxic waste and they should move swiftly.

                  It calls for enactment of stringent laws to tame this sort of toxicity.@EPA don't loosen your belts until sanity is restored

                    Hope this rule will hold every polluter accountable for their actions.
