In the news, 3/23/14

Thanks to what happened with Duke Energy in North Carolina a few weeks ago, anything having to do with coal ash in rivers cannot be taken lightly.

The Sierra Club says Louisville Gas & Electric is discharging coal ash into the Ohio River below Louisville illegally. The company isn't commenting, and the state agency that regulates the discharge disagrees. The Sierra Club says it will take the matter to court.


Here's more from Cleveland on efforts to stop the spread of Asian carp in the Ohio River and Great Lakes regions. According to the article, Asian carp have been found in the Greenup pool of the Ohio
River. That's my territory, so I'll be listening for people complaining this summer about big fish jumping out of the river and smacking them in the head as they run their fishing boats or personal watercraft.
