Coal Ash: "When the Rivers Run Black"

"America’s largest industrial accident tore apart the town of Kingston, Tennessee. Five years later, has the industry learned anything?"

"Five years ago, the town of Kingston, Tennessee, was overwhelmed by more than a billion tons of sludge spilled from a local power plant. In the new MATTER story When the Rivers Run Black, Rachel Cernansky recounts the disaster — and explores how the government and industry have failed to stop it happening again."

Rachel Cernansky reports for MATTER in a free ebook with a photo essay by J Henry Fair March 2014.
