This takes me back

Having followed the recent stories of coal ash spills in Tennessee (see the story “Ash and Sludge Cover Tennessee Town” by Leslie Wolcott at the Green Daily) and Alabama (see the story “What the Heck? Second Coal Ash Spill, this Time in Alabama” by Michael Graham Richard at Treehugger) , I’m reminded of flooding and hog farms here in Missouri just a couple of years ago.

Just to refresh your memory, here’s a  story about the Taum Sauk Reservoir entitled “Rupture at Ameren Hydroelectirc Plant Causes Flooding” in the St. Louis Business Journal and here’s one about corporate farming called “Hog Farm Battle Reaches Northeast Missouri” by Cheryl Wittenauer of the AP.
