A group of concerned citizens, media, and members of various environmental agencies met today, Tues 18th, at a cemetery overlooking the Schuykill energy power plant and the toxic Ellengowan mining site to release reports concerning the contamination of groundwater by coal fly ash. Speakers were Jeff Stant from Clean Air Task Force, Lisa Evans, an attorney from Earthjustice, Dante Picciano, an attorney, scientist, and founder of Army For A Clean Environment, Robert Gadiniski, Geologist, PADEP (retired), Robert Krick, Vice President Mahoney Creek Watershed, and Brian Whitman, Professor of Environmental Engineering, Wilkes University.
The group presented facts and photographs showing the effects of fly ash on the environment. One of the points that was brought up is where there is fly ash, the temperature of the ground water in that vicinity has severely increased, indicating a chemical reaction with the water. It is hoped this press conference will push the EPA into stricter rules concerning the placement of fly ash.
