" The riskiest of the coal ash storage facilities are lagoons, where the toxins in coal ash essentially dissolve into the water they are mixed with. This toxin-filled water sits behind earthen dams where it can leak into groundwater, and is also frequently sent, still laden with contaminants, back into rivers and lakes - both recreational waters and drinking-water sources. "
It gets even worse......."...most of the storage facilities for coal ash don’t have any waterproof liners to prevent these toxins from leaking into groundwater and contaminating aquifers and public waterways."
This wet fly ash incident is like the RM spill in Hungary.......: The Kingston disaster contaminated over 300 acres of surrounding property, poisoned two nearby recreational waterways, and tore full-grown trees out of the ground as it destroyed homes and other property in its path. "
Moreover, Kingston is just one plant in the Tennessee Valley Authority’s fleet of 11 coal plants and just one plant out of the regions’ approximately 80.
And the last paragraph is an addtl eye opener
Kingston was called the worst enviro disaster in U.S. history.
Reconsider what Veolia does since 2010......"Dryash". They convert wet to dry for stacking, but do not extract. With ORT, Veolia can grab both markets, wet & what out there has already been dried, sitting indefinitely stacked / stored somewhere. Man oh man, this is one heck of a fit for Veolia. A beast in the making is my opinion & this is just the RM / Fly aspect to ORT. ( wow )
