AS REPORTED IN THE HENDERSON DAILY NEWS:
Luminant Generation Co. is being sued by the Sierra Club over hazardous emissions at the Martin Creek Lake coal-fired power plant in eastern Rusk County.
In the complaint filed on Thursday in Texarkana federal court, the San Francisco-based environmental group alleges that the plant is among the dirtiest in the entire country and is in clear, flagrant violation of the U.S. Clean Air Act.
“According to the EPA, it is the worst power plant for mercury pollution among all U.S. coal plants, emitting 1,764 pounds in 2008,” the Sierra Club said in a statement.
