CPP Investigates Health Impacts of Coal Ash

A series of hearings across the state are giving the public the opportunity to weigh in on coal ash disposal, and policymakers are getting an earful.  Residents have brought up numerous concerns, and some have suggested current health issues could be a result of water contamination from coal ash.  Carolina Public Press decided to investigate those claims and found more questions than answers.  CPP Managing Editor Frank Taylor spoke with Jeremy Loeb. 

The full conversation is above.  A shorter broadcast version is below.
