In the center of our town, a large, unlined coal ash dump sits directly above the popular public greenway on the banks of Bolin Creek, where families and children explore and play.
This coal ash dump is located on Chapel Hill's Police Station property along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Testing of groundwater and soil around this coal ash dump has found high levels of arsenic, mercury, chromium, lead, thallium, and other dangerous pollutants.
