Wis. DNR: Coal-Ash spill no risk to human health.
A recent mudslide that swept tons of coal ash and debris into and around Lake Michigan probably will have little effect on the environment and none on human health, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said November 10. Test results show elevated levels of several elements in the coal ash still on land and in the water, two DNR officials said. But the contaminants are confined to areas not accessible to people, and the chemicals can be cleaned up and safely disposed.

The SEC’s head of human resources and a law firm hired to advise the agency had recommended the chairman fire one person, whom the SEC described as a manager in the office that inspects investment firms. But the chairman did not fire the worker because doing so “would harm the agency’s work,” a SEC spokesman said.
