(MISSOURINET) –  There’s environmental concern following a new report that shows nearly all Missouri coal plants are releasing toxins into the local groundwater. The EPA implemented a rule in 2015 requiring power plants to monitor and test local groundwater, but Abel Russ, a senior attorney for the Environmental Integrity Project says more needs to be done…

Russ says that the Environmental Protection Agency should step up, begin investigating these sites and enforce the rule. Coal ash toxins in water are tasteless, odorless, and can’t be seen.
