Labadie Power Plant
“My thought is, we’re in a better place than ever right now to actually stop this landfill,” says Patricia Schuba, President of the Labadie Environmental Organization.
Environmentalists are screaming foul over Ameren Missouri’s plans to construct the ash-pit at its Labadie facility, saying that it doesn’t meet county regulations.
Should Ameren be able to expand its Labadie Power Plant grounds to include a coal ash landfill? That’s the question Missouri energy officials are seeking to answer at a 3-day hearing starting today.
A three-day state hearing on Ameren Missouri’s planned coal ash landfill in Franklin County starts Monday in Jefferson City.
“Despite what Illinois does to monitor around coal ash sites, there’s still situations where communities are put at risk.”
