"APS Sued Over Four Corners Pollution"

"Several environmental groups sued Arizona Public Service Co. and the other owners of the Four Corners Power Plant in New Mexico on Tuesday, seeking to shut down the power plant if they won't add additional pollution controls to the facility."

"As one of the largest coal-fired power plants in the nation and largest polluters, the plant is the frequent target of criticism from environmental groups.

Earthjustice of California filed the suit on behalf of the Sierra Club, National Parks Conservation Association, and two Navajo environmental groups representing the community where the power plant is located."
