Permits Lignite Mine Expansion Despite Water Worries.

Texas regulators approved a 12,000-acre coal mine expansion despite objections from local governments and a river authority concerned about their water supplies. Three nearby counties, two cities, a river authority, a groundwater district and several landowners had asked Texas’ upstream energy regulator, the Texas Railroad Commission, not to permit a new coal mine and ash disposal along the tributaries that fed their drinking water reservoir, Choke Canyon Lake.
This permit is an unacceptable risk to the water they depend on and the land they call home. They have a duty and responsibility to protect the water resources for their children and future generations who will suffer from the poor decisions that make.

      Does it concern to them about the disasters we are facing already due to such projects?

              Unacceptable. How can we still have decisions supporting coal mining?
