A report has uncovered recently that the Colstrip Steam Electric Station is being charged of evading Clean Air Act regulations and as a result of the same, it is facing a court case by the Montana Environmental Information Center.
The information center along with the Sierra Club has claimed that the power plant is contributing to the increased coal-fired pollution being realized these days. Also, the situation is being highly concerned after reports that such pollution caused by coal-fired power plants leads to lung and heart diseases.
It has also been told by an investigating team that Montana has been facing high number of deaths due to the same. Despite having proper knowledge about the same, says the report, the organization has been continuing to focus on its business.
However, a spokesman for a company owning the plant said that Colstrip works completely in tandem with the set regulations. Also, it has spent some $100 million to bring reforms in its existing system. It is but obvious from its $1 billion profit in recent past that it has avoided keeping environment clean to make money, said Dr. Robert Shepard, Helena physician.
The plant has been warned of being sued in case it further seems to violate the rules, the report concludes.
