Protect Our Drinking Water from Toxic Coal Ash Pollution!

Coal ash is contaminating our drinking water supplies and endangering Hoosiers’ health.   With more coal ash sludge lagoons than any other state, Indiana should be acting to ensure safe disposal of this dangerous waste, but our coal ash disposal standards are weaker than those for household trash. HEC is urging that the U.S. EPA adopt enforceable national standards for coal ash disposal.
