Lean more about groundwater contamination in SE Wisconsin


Residents in Southeastern Wisconsin deserves clean, safe water

dont-drink-the-water-cover-fb-300x300Over the last 20 years, groundwater contamination has become a major issue in some parts of southeastern Wisconsin.

And we’ve long been curious: Could it be coal ash?

In Wisconsin, large coal plants alone generate nearly 1.8 million tons of toxic coal ash annually, of which 85% goes to “beneficial use” projects. This includes dumping under churches and schools, under or atop roads, on park paths and more. Our recent report shows a connection between the unsafe disposal of coal ash in our environment and groundwater contamination.
