The James River Association commended Governor McAuliffe for his amendments to Senate Bill 1398 which, if amended as proposed, will require full assessments of coal ash ponds to be completed prior to the issuance of permits for their closure.

“These amendments provide a common sense approach to a complex issue and ensure that coal ash ponds are closed properly to safely protect Virginia’s precious water resources for the future,” said Jamie Brunkow, Lower James Riverkeeper for the James River Association.
