\r\n i just heard a quick blurb on the local news the gov. of Tn. has made a suggestion to see if coal ash sludge from power plants could be used in road construction. the only thing im thinking is they wonder if they can mix the coal ash sludge in with asphalt to pave the highways?????\r\n
\r\ni read an article in the paper today saying \'\'the ash is full of arsenic and elevated levels of radioactive radium\'\' and \'\'both substances are potential carcinogens",..
\r\ndo yall think its a good idea to take toxic sludge and mix with asphalt (or however else they suggest to use this by-product) to be used to pave roads?. maybe this makes sense but sounds like spreading a problem around to me. i know asphalt is petroleum based but this kinda struck me a little strange. i hope yall can convince me otherwise.\r\n
