Tallahassee — Six major facilities pump millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater every day into a slow-moving St. Johns River that cannot flush out the pollution load, leaving it officially classified as impaired. While much of this massive discharge is legal, significant amounts violate permit limits without triggering required enforcement or corrective action, according to a series of complaints filed today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

Today is the deadline for coal-fired power plants to post the results of their groundwater monitoring under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2015 rule regulating the storage and disposal of coal ash. EPA required such monitoring to determine the extent to which coal ash impoundments and landfills were contaminating groundwater. The results confirm the widespread groundwater contamination caused by coal ash around the country. In particular, Duke Energy’s results reveal startlingly high levels of radioactivity at 11 out of 18 plants.
Contrary to industry practices, Duke Energy did not summarize its groundwater monitoring results in a table, instead burying results in more than 20,000 pages of lab results. Earthjustice Senior Attorney Lisa Evans took a closer look at the data, and found what Duke Energy might have been trying to hide: high levels of radioactivity at a majority of its plants.
