    A Coal Ash break-through

    The Dan River spill, one of the largest in US History seems like a long time ago. The memory of dealing with the DEQ in Raleigh, however stays with me and I'm sure Gene Addesso. We were dealing with a Republican administration who were very embarrassed and a DEQ leadership that was embarrassed to the point that they would not even speak with us, lawsuits were filed attorneys asked ridiculous and uneducated questions, and all the while, the coal ash spill was slowly traveling toward the Kerr Dam.

Uranium Mining in Virginia: A Risky Experiment

Virginia Uranium Inc. is pushing to lift a 30-year ban on uranium mining in Virginia so it can mine and mill the radioactive metal in Southside where the waste would remain toxic for centuries. Citizens statewide are concerned about the dangers of uranium mining to drinking water, air quality, farm products, fishing, and tourism.
