The Burton Island coal ash dump from the NRG Indian River Power Plant is the subject of a remediation plan proposed by the company (NRG) and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). The DNREC hearing on the Plan, Feb 6, 2013, at the Millsboro Fire Hall brought more questions than answers.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club opposes this plan of remediation action for the Burton Island coal ash dump site.
In August, and again in September, we spread the word about the hazards of mountaintop removal coal mining on the University of Delaware’s Newark campus with the University of Delaware’s Students for the Environment (S4E) and the Earth Quaker Action Team (EQAT).
