Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The process of removing coal ash from an idle power plant site in Conway, SC, is well underway. More than a million tons of the ash is piled on the site of Santee Cooper's now-idle Grainger power plant next to the Waccamaw River. A company spokeswoman said recycling the ash into concrete isn't just the most environmentally sound way to handle it, it's also the cheapest for the company.
