Prohibits The Harmful Coal Ash Waste

In December, a coal ash waste plant in Tennessee spilled and unleashing highly toxic substance that cause cancer and other major health problems including infertility.

The EPA has not taken any action to regulate it.

In the end, 1 billion gallons of sludge leaked into the Emory River, killing most of the fishes and other animal around the area as well as causes a serious environmental harm.

EPA should put a new regulation against the dangerous coal ash waste. We have to let EPA know that this is very important and immediate action is needed.
