Governor Offers Amendments to Coal Ash Disposal Bill

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has proposed amendments to a Senate bill calling for a suspension of the permitting process for closing Dominion Energy’s coal ash ponds for an additional assessment of the impact on water quality and the environment.

Dominion’s Rob Richardson said, “The company’s plans for closing the ponds continue to evolve. Dominion is beginning a feasibility study right away. We have been consistent in saying that he will work to develop closure plans that are specifically designed for each site that are protective of the environment and fully compliant.”
