Coal Ash at Dominion Energy's Possum Point Power Plant


Originally at the Possum Point Power Plant, there were five ponds (A, B, C, D & E) that held coal ash when the plant operated using coal. Coal ash was removed from ponds A, B, C & E and placed in pond D. 

Four million cubic yards of coal ash remain in pond D and Dominion Energy is required by state law to remove all the coal ash as follows:

“Beneficially reusing some or all of the coal ash through a recycling process located on or off-site”, and/or “Disposing of some or all of the coal ash in a new, modern and fully permitted landfill, which includes a composite liner and is located on or off-site.”

Metrorail in Prince William?

Traffic isn't about cars, it's about houses and where you put them.

Increasing density around a transportation hub like a metro station could be an effective way for Prince William to accommodate a growing population while minimizing the number of cars we add to roads.

In addition to being a sound planning strategy, it's also a good way for Prince William to compete for state and federal funds that would be required to build a $20-30B Metrorail project.
