Newspaper Articles

Extensive coverage of the issue of the Cumberland Park Project was in the New River Current section of The Roanoke Times newspaper on Tuesday, January 29. Links to these two articles can be found on the About Giles County's Fight Against Coal Waste section on the right side of this blog.

The House of Delegates Bill (HB514) is discussed in one article. This bill would have required a public hearing before Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality could issue a permit for use of coal combustion waste as structural fill but the bill died in committee already! Hopefully, the senate version will fare better.
