Murray Energy Coal Pollutes Southern Ohio’s Waterways

posted by Rainforest Action Network

Thanks to Mary Ellen for alerting me to this story in Southern Ohio.

A coal slurry spill from Murray Energy’s American Century Mine is threatening Belmont County Creek.

This is the fourth coal slurry spill into the creek in recent years – and yet Murray Energy wants to put another impoundment right on the creek.

Murray is the largest privately owned coal company in the US, and the second largest producer of longwall coal.

You can read the full story about the spill here in the Columbus Dispatch.
