Tri-States Public Radio: A 3-Part Series on “Delayed Action: The Industry Mine”
Wednesday, June 5, 2013
The Illinois Pollution Control Board found that the Industry Coal Mine in southeast Illinois violated its water pollution permit 624 times over 7 years — as demonstrated by an ELPC analysis in our efforts to hold the coal mine accountable for this consistent and egregious permit violations. Tri-States Public Radio has published a series that “examines the violations, why it took the state so long to take legal action, and why despite all the violations the state renewed the mine’s permit.” Read and listen to the series.
ELPC’s InIllinoisWater.org site also has video, photos, and other resources regarding this fascinating story.
