Down here in Horry Co. South Carolina, we have a similar situation. Just outside of Conway, there is a decommissioned coal powered electric generating station that has holding ponds right alongside of the Waccamaw River. They contain quite a bit of Arsenic, I believe. Another disaster just waiting to happen.

It takes a certain type of person to value profits above the environment and the people who live in it.
Thought I'd post this that I came across: http://greenpeaceblo...m_campaign=duke
This is the first large spill that has interfered with my personal waters. Will I be able to go canoeing, kayaking, and inner tubing this summer like I did last year? No.
Guess I'll take more five hour each way trips to the beach and find out what our coastline is like.

>> There's a lot of those people, and even more who just don't care or don't pay attention.
