The Eco-Justice Collaborative is running a pressure campaign to protect the Middle Fork River, the state’s only National Scenic River. The campaign goal is to ensure that Dynegy-Midwest Generation moves its toxic coal ash out of the floodplain of the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River and places it away from the river, in properly-constructed, lined facilities. To learn about the campaign, and take action, visit http://ecojusticecollaborative.org/protect-middle-fork/.
