Texas Permits Lignite Mine Expansion Despite Water Worries

Texas regulators have approved a controversial 12,000-acre coal mine expansion despite objections from local governments and a river authority concerned about potential threats to their water supplies. The expansion, permitted by the Texas Railroad Commission, has raised concerns about the disposal of coal ash and its potential impact on the Choke Canyon Lake, a critical water source for the region. Opponents argue that the coal mine expansion could lead to contamination of the lake's tributaries, endangering both water quality and public health. Although there have been legal challenges and public opposition, the commission voted unanimously to issue the permit, marking the second new coal mining permit in Texas in the past decade.

              This decision prioritizes short-term economic gains over the long-term health of our ecosystems and communities.
