PROTECT THE JAMES RIVER- Demand Dominion Power to remove all coal ash.

This petition had 3,872 supporters

Oppose Dominion Power's current dewatering and solid waste permits. The permits as written would allow coal ash toxins to continue seeping into rivers and remain indefinitely on various floodplains. Permanently leaving coal ash waste sites in their current place through proposed "capping" methods removes the environmental responsibility that Dominion Virginia Power owes to the public. 

We have a safer demand. Dominion Virginia Power should be required to move all of the coal ash from these old ponds to a location where it can be safely stored away from rivers and communities.

We demand that Dominion Virginia Power must dig up and remove all coal ash from power stations that are located next to valued Virginia communities and Virginia rivers. We demand that The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, The Virginia State Water Control Board, and Virginia State Legislators act accordingly to our rights and close these coal ash ponds appropriately, by digging them up. Hold Dominion Virginia Power accountable for properly closing coal ash waste sites at the Chesterfield Power Plant. Dig it up!
