Coal Ash From Kingston, Tenn To Perry County, Alabama

On Dec. 22, 2008 a disaster of historic proportions happened in Kingston, Tennessee when a pond containing several million cubic yards of coal ash burst into the Emory River.

That ash is now being shipped by the train load to Perry County, Alabama, an Environmental Justice Community.

It is then mixed with household garbage and the leachate trucked to nearby Marion Alabama. Listen to these citizens describe the horrible living conditions.
