A coal/pet coke plant is proposed for Bay City, TX in Matagorda County.
The plant is to be located on the Colorado River, just a few miles upriver from the Matagorda Bay system and Gulf of Mexico. The plant is permitted to spew 18,000 tons of emissions per year -- including mercury, arsenic, selenium, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and many other toxic pollutants. It is also permitted to use 36,000 acre feet of fresh water per year, 80% of which is evaporated.
The plant is a direct threat to the health and fragile ecosystem of the area and its people, and will negatively impact the area's agriculture and fishing industries. Stop the construction of the White Stallion coal plant.
