"Alabama Department of Environmental Management's chief of solid waste, Phillip Davis, said a municipal waste landfill in Perry County in west central Alabama (also) will receive ash shipments."
Coal ash is nasty stuff...full of toxins. Perry County is one of the poorest counties in the state. It lost 10% of its population between 2000 and 2008. The population is almost 70% black. And the TVA is sending the coal ash to a municipal waste dump 275 miles away in that poor Alabama County? Like Tennessee doesn't have any dumps?
[UPDATE: Pennsylvania had already said no thanks. Where is the Alabama Congressional Delegation on this???]
