Clean Power Rule to impact Georgia coal plants

Atlanta readers may have heard that the Environmental Protection Agency released a new rule at the beginning of June which aims to cut back carbon emissions to 30 percent by the year 2030. Already, Georgia Power has starting the process of upgrading units at its plants so as to come into compliance with the new rule. More shutdowns are reportedly scheduled for next year

Old GM site could soon be transformed into transportation hub

New zoning rules applying to a 165-acre tract of land in Doraville previously home to a GM plant will reportedly help to open that site up and put it back to use. The plant was closed down back in 2008 in an effort by the auto manufacturer to restructure its business, and has been sitting idle since. Atlanta readers may know that the property is on the intersection of the Atlanta Perimeter, three miles from the DeKalb Peachtree Airport.

Supreme Court decision protects company, government from contamination liability

A group of homeowners received disappointing news on Monday when the Supreme Court ruled that they will not be able to pursue CTS Corp., an electronics manufacturer, for contaminating drinking water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. The contamination apparently occurred while the company was conducting business until 1987, when it sold the property. The contamination itself was not discovered until 2009, when residents found that various chemicals in the water had the potential to cause health problems.
