Coal to Diesel Plant in Dale Still being Contested by Local Residents

Dale (NNDC):

Fear of health issues along with negative environmental concerns has spurred SW Indiana Citizens for Quality of Life and others, to hold another public discussion to Riverview Energy’s plans to build a coal to diesel plant in Dale.  The discussion will be led by the group’s president, Mary Hess and Valley Watch president John Blair.

IDEM says the proposed plant will not pose a significant risk to public health or the environment but local residents aren’t so sure.  The discussion will take place January 28th at 7 p.m. at Dale Presbyterian Church.

Some opponents think IDEM’s motives are political in this case, saying they don’t feel any better about the plant coming to Dale than they did before IDEM issued its findings.
