They told this community there would be no reason to be concerned when they proposed doing this. Where have we heard that before?
"The transfer of the ash 327 miles from Tennessee to the mostly black community of Uniontown is partly a story about how people are faring at the receiving end. Federal environmental justice policy requires that low-income and minority communities aren't burdened with out-sized environmental risks."
Read what the residents have to say about that in Uniontown, Alabama.
Why is this happening? Once again "profit for the county and state over people." This tune is becoming far too familiar....
"The state environmental agency, which oversees the landfill, and Perry County, whose commissioners approved it, get a fee for the ash dumped there. The county expects to take in more than $3 million for county roads, schools and other needs."
That agency would be ADEM and there's that same old line about "money for roads and schools" AGAIN.
Where the hell is the EPA for this state??????
POLITICAL CORRUPTION IS A NATIONWIDE ISSUE AFFECTING ALL OF US. ALABAMA RANKS #5 AS THE MOST CORRUPT STATE. *DOJ 2007 stats
Something is very wrong in the Land of Cotton

NO OTHER COMMUNITY, RICH OR POOR, URBAN OR SUBURBAN,BLACK, BROWN,RED, YELLOW OR WHITE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BECOME AN "ENVIRONMENTAL SACRIFICE ZONE."
