Toxic Runoff from a Valley Fill in Eastern Kentucky

    Newer Older

    On April 1st, the EPA announced strict new guidelines on the allowable levels of water pollutants for new valley fill permits. Coal companies complained that the new guidelines are too stringent and that the water coming out of valley fills is safer than a lot of bottled water. Bottoms up, boys.
