Alabama Power has launched a series of public meetings around Alabama to identify and discuss the company’s assessment of corrective measures to address groundwater protection standards.

Monday’s meeting was at the Carver Community Center in Eutaw. Subject matter experts explained to residents the benefits of the company’s preferred method of disposing coal combustion residuals, commonly known as coal ash. Best practices recommended by state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were followed throughout the meeting, including 6 feet of social distancing, the availability of face masks for all attendees and multiple hand sanitizer stations.

“Being in the community and sharing our closure plan with the people we serve is an important part of this process,” said Lauren Petty, a principal engineer at Alabama Power. “We appreciate our customers visiting with us this evening and the opportunity to share why our plan is the right choice for Alabama.”
