Overview of Marsh Fork Elementary School - Raleigh County, WV

Marsh Fork Elementary in Sundial, W.Va., is on the front lines of mountaintop removal, located 150 feet from a coal preparation plant and 400 feet below a leaking dam holding back 2.8 billion gallons of toxic coal sludge. Local residents have launched a campaign called Pennies of Promise to build a new school in a safe location in their community.
