IN 2014, THE DAN RIVER STEAM STATION IN EDEN, NORTH CAROLINA, RELEASED 39,000 TONS OF COAL ASH INTO THE DAN RIVER. DUKE ENERGY AGREED TO PAY $3 MILLION FOR THE COST OF CLEANUP, WHICH POLLUTED 70 MILES OF THE RIVER WITH ARSENIC, LEAD, AND MERCURY. WITH THE NEW ROLLBACKS FROM THE EPA, DUKE MAY BE ABLE TO TRANSFER FUTURE COSTS ONTO NEARBY COMMUNITIES. | PHOTO BY AP PHOTO/GERRY BROOME

Coal Ash Comeback

Last month, Trump’s EPA rolled back Obama-era regulations that limited contamination from the 737 toxic coal-ash sites in the US. In justifying the move, EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler said the old rule placed “heavy burdens on electricity producers” and the revisions would “protect public health and the environment.”

Coal-ash experts say Wheeler’s claims are phony and the EPA “should be ashamed.”
