Who did this test and who paid for it? Really - I am not as concerned about water contamination as I am air. We ARE breathing the coal ash. It's on our driveways, houses, and TV screens - yes - the black stuff we wipe off and pressure wash from our driveways is coal ash residue. Not to mention what it is doing to our lungs. How many kids in this are have asthma? Coal ash is bad. Get rid of it - go nuclear.

I CAN TELL YOU FOR A FACT THAT THE WELL WATER IS POLUTED
I have had my well tested by Appalachian Voices and by a North Carolina Geologist. I also have to change my well's filters every month (and these are filters that are supposed to last 3 to 4 months) simply because the filter is blocking 99% of the metals in my well water. There is Arsenic,
Barium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Lead, Manges Mercury, Selenium and
Vanadium in the well water. I near the Glen Allen Energy Plant!!!!!! All of us are drinking only bottle water and only giving that to our pets as well.
