Groups file Suit Against Railroad and Aurora Energy Services after Concerns go Ignored.

Seward, Alaska: After more than 60 days on notice, and years of complaints from local residents, the Alaska Railroad and Aurora Energy Services have failed to take meaningful steps toward fixing the coal dust and water pollution problems at their export facility in Seward. Left with no other options, Trustees for Alaska, a public interest law firm representing Alaska Community Action on Toxics and the local chapter of the Sierra Club, has filed suit over unpermitted discharges of coal into Resurrection Bay.
