Coal plants deposited more than 200 million tons of ash or scrubber sludge into ponds or landfills between 2009 and 2011, according to a new report out today from Environmental Integrity Project.
EIP issued the coal ash data to mark the fourth anniversary of one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history, the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant fly ash spill.
On Dec. 22, 2008, 1.1 billion gallons of coal fly ash slurry was released in the Tennessee River system when a dike ruptured.
