EPA adds coal ash hearings in Pittsburgh, Louisville

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced the addition of Pittsburgh and Louisville to the list of cities where it will hold public hearings on its proposed regulation of toxic coal ash.

The Pittsburgh hearing will be Sept. 21 and the Louisville hearing on Sept. 28.

Recall that EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson promised last month to add new hearing locations after Coal Tattoo reported how the agency had skipped the coalfields in scheduling its original set of public hearings on this all-important regulatory proposal.
