Robert E. Murray, chief executive officer of Murray Energy and a major supplier fibrous histiocytoma for the power complex, lobbied the Trump administration for policies that would help the fibrous histiocytoma facility, and in 2017 the Energy Department proposed a plan to fibrous histiocytoma pay coal generators more for stockpiling fuel on-site. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected the idea in 2018. FirstEnergy Solutions filed for bankruptcy in March 2018. [1] Incidents

In 2010, Abt Associates issued a study commissioned by the Clean Air fibrous histiocytoma Task Force, a nonprofit research and advocacy organization, quantifying the deaths and other health effects attributable to fine fibrous histiocytoma particle pollution from coal-fired power plants. [17] Fine particle pollution consists of a complex mixture of soot, heavy metals, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Among these particles, the most dangerous are those less than 2.5 microns in diameter, which are so tiny that they can evade the lung’s natural defenses, enter the bloodstream, and be transported to vital organs. Impacts are especially severe among the elderly, children, and those with respiratory disease. The study found that over 13,000 deaths and tens of thousands of cases of chronic fibrous histiocytoma bronchitis, acute bronchitis, asthma, congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, dysrhythmia, ischemic heart disease, chronic lung disease, and pneumonia each year are attributable to fine particle pollution fibrous histiocytoma from U.S. coal plant emissions. These deaths and illnesses are major examples of coal’s external costs, i.e. uncompensated harms inflicted upon the public at large. Low-income and minority populations are disproportionately impacted as well, due to the tendency of companies to avoid locating power fibrous histiocytoma plants upwind of affluent communities. To monetize the health impact of fine particle pollution from fibrous histiocytoma each coal plant, Abt assigned a value of $7,300,000 to each 2010 mortality, based on a range of government and private studies. Valuations of illnesses ranged from $52 for an asthma episode to $440,000 for a case of chronic bronchitis.

In a December 2010 article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, president of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 272 at fibrous histiocytoma the Bruce Mansfield plant asked the University of Pittsburgh Medical fibrous histiocytoma Center to compile a list of diagnosed medical problems affecting fibrous histiocytoma union members, since he had heard multiple reports of illness. The president, Herman Marshman, got the results in 2009. Here’s what UPMC documented from its health records for 360 fibrous histiocytoma IBEW members employed at the 2,390-megawatt power plant, as well as about a dozen recent retirees: [19]

• Twenty-five percent of the workforce or 91 union members had fibrous histiocytoma hypertension, including several cases of malignant hypertension, a sudden and rapid development of extremely high blood pressure fibrous histiocytoma that destroys blood vessels and organs. Another 33 had been diagnosed with heart disease, including 11 with atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries; six with blood clots and embolisms, and two who were suffering from aneurysms, a ballooning of the artery wall.

• Many also have been diagnosed with pulmonary problems including 21 fibrous histiocytoma with acute bronchitis; 13 more with respiratory infections, most of them acute; 11 cases of asthma; seven cases of airway obstruction; four cases of other lung diseases; three cases of pneumonia; two cases each of pleurisy — an inflammation of the lining of the lungs and chest fibrous histiocytoma cavity — and pulmonary collapse; and one case of emphysema.

• Lung ailments affected more than 15 percent of the IBEW fibrous histiocytoma membership. The union also reported a notable number of airway ailments fibrous histiocytoma including 32 cases of sinusitis, 12 cases of pharyngitis, an inflammation of the throat or pharnyx; nine cases or allergic or chronic rhinitis (infected nasal passages) and two cases of acute tracheitis (bacterial infection of the windpipe).

In August 2010 a study released by the Environmental Integrity fibrous histiocytoma Project, the Sierra Club and Earthjustice reported that Pennsylvania, along with 34 states, had significant groundwater contamination from coal ash that is not fibrous histiocytoma currently regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The report, in an attempt to pressure the EPA to regulate coal fibrous histiocytoma ash, noted that most states do not monitor drinking water contamination fibrous histiocytoma levels near waste disposal sites. [20] The report mentioned Pennsylvania based Bruce Mansfield Power Station and fibrous histiocytoma Hatfield’s Ferry Power Station as both having groundwater contamination due fibrous histiocytoma to coal ash waste.

The Bruce Mansfield Power Station Little Blue Run Dam surface fibrous histiocytoma impoundment is on the EPA’s official June 2009 list of Coal Combustion Residue (CCR) Surface Impoundments with High Hazard Potential Ratings. The rating applies to sites at which a dam failure fibrous histiocytoma would most likely cause loss of human life, but does not assess of the likelihood of such an fibrous histiocytoma event. [22] Proposed expansion of Blue Run Waste Site

In Feb. 2011, FirstEnergy said it wants to expand the Bruce Mansfield Power fibrous histiocytoma Station Little Blue Run Dam coal ash site for the fibrous histiocytoma Bruce Mansfield Power Station, as the waste site is nearing capacity. The company wants to pay Greene Township, Beaver County, for the right to dump more coal waste on adjacent fibrous histiocytoma land it bought for $2.4 million in 2010. [23] The surface impoundment is on the EPA’s official June 2009 list of Coal Combustion Residue (CCR) Surface Impoundments with High Hazard Potential Ratings. The rating applies to sites at which a dam failure fibrous histiocytoma would most likely cause loss of human life, but does not assess of the likelihood of such an fibrous histiocytoma event. [24] The site has also been found to be contaminating groundwater. [25]

FirstEnergy Corp. has offered Greene Township $15 million to embrace plans for the new 264-acre coal-ash disposal impoundment. Township Secretary Sandra J. Wright said the town will not consider the offer until fibrous histiocytoma the company submits information about the potential harms it may fibrous histiocytoma pose to the community: "The supervisors would have to change the zoning from agriculture fibrous histiocytoma to industrial, but the residents want to keep the rural character of fibrous histiocytoma the township." FirstEnergy has yet to submit plans for the coal ash fibrous histiocytoma disposal site to the township, which is along the West Virginia border in the southwestern fibrous histiocytoma portion of the county. "We’re constantly getting people calling us to complain about odors fibrous histiocytoma and this and that" related to Little Blue, Ms. Wright said. FirstEnergy’s 2,375-megawatt Bruce Mansfield Power Station in nearby Shippingport has dumped fibrous histiocytoma 100 million tons of fly ash at the site produced fibrous histiocytoma from coal burning and calcium sulfate collected by the plant’s pollution control devices. Little Blue, once a cobalt-blue lake, is 400 feet deep and nearly filled to the top fibrous histiocytoma with waste from coal burning. The former owner of the power plant created the impoundment fibrous histiocytoma 35 years ago by building a 400-foot-high dam across Little Blue Run near its confluence with fibrous histiocytoma the Ohio River.

Concerned residents and the Environmental Integrity Project, a national environmental group, say the unlined waste site poses risks of heavy metal fibrous histiocytoma contamination of well water. Continuing debate over potential environmental and health risks from Little fibrous histiocytoma Blue was detailed in the Post-Gazette’s "Mapping Mortality" series published in December. In that series, the Post-Gazette’s ecological study of mortality rates for heart and respiratory fibrous histiocytoma disease and lung cancer revealed elevated rates for the combined fibrous histiocytoma area of Greene Township, Hookstown and Georgetown. Heart disease deaths there were 46 percent higher than the fibrous histiocytoma national rate. The total of 88 deaths from all three diseases also fibrous histiocytoma was 42 percent higher than the predicted number of 62 fibrous histiocytoma deaths, based on national rates from 2000 through 2008. A community survey showed overwhelming opposition to the waste expansion. The township will await submission of a final plan before fibrous histiocytoma making further comment. [26] Lawsuit

On May 30, 2012, Little Blue Run Regional Action Group, a coalition of residents living near the impoundment, filed a lawsuit against utility company FirstEnergy, charging in their notice of intent that FirstEnergy violated state fibrous histiocytoma laws by exceeding pollution limits, and federal laws by failing to disclose toxic releases.
