Last week, the EPA held a public hearing in Charlotte on proposed coal ash regulations, one of eight hearings planned nationwide. The hearing cast a brighter light locally on the topic of coal ash pollution, but the situation is complex, and has several facets — and points of view.  On this edition of Charlotte Talks, we’ll bring you up to speed on the proposed regulations, what people on all sides of the issue think, and what impact all of this has on the Charlotte region.

Guests
Bruce Henderson – reporter for the Charlotte Observer
Rhiannon Bowman – freelance reporter who has written on this topic for Creative Loafing
John Downey – Senior Staff Reporter for the Charlotte Business Journal
