Catching Up on Coal Ash: Why The Dam at Plant Barry is Unsafe

Catching Up on Coal Ash: Why The Dam at Plant Barry is Unsafe

If the dam broke, it would release more than 21 million tons of toxic coal ash into the heart of the Delta,  a volume 20 times larger than the oil spilled from  BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster. We don’t want to see another disaster strike the Gulf Coast. Covering this leaking unlined pond near the Mobile River is irresponsible and threatens the health of our community, economy, and environment.
