The Middle Fork of the Vermilion River is Illinois' only National Scenic River, but its got one problem: Dynegy's three huge coal ash dumps seep pollution into the river! Dynegy wants to cover nearly a half mile of riverbank in rocks to prevent their coal ash from spilling into the river INSTEAD of just moving their coal ash out of the floodplain. The Illinois EPA has tentatively issued a water quality certification for the massive bank armoring project, opened a public comment period, and is holding a public hearing on March 26th. prairierivers.org/hearing
