Environmental legal group Earthjustice claims a coal ash dump associated with Gulf Power’s Scholz generating plant near Sneads, Florida is leeching pollutants like arsenic into the water. In a press release the group says scientists measured arsenic levels coming from the plant at 300-times the amount that’s considered safe for drinking water.  But Gulf Power spokeswoman Natalie Smith says her company is required to watch for that and so far, hasn’t found any evidence the plant is releasing anymore than an Environmental Protection Agency permit allows.
