Ameren coal ash used as mine fill near St. Louis

Sunday, 31 March 2013 23:26 Published in Local News

STE. GENEVIEVE, Mo. (AP) - Ameren Missouri is experimenting with using coal ash as mine filler south of St. Louis.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/177BxfR ) reports that the ash comes from its Rush Island plant. The company is sending truckloads of it for disposal in an inactive section of Mississippi Lime Co.'s cavernous limestone mine near Ste. Genevieve.

 

   For now the arrangement is part of a 60-day trial.

   So far, there's been no public outcry and only limited regulatory review. Mississippi Lime says both companies benefit from the arrangement. But the Missouri Chapter of the Sierra Club has raised concerns that the effort could place the region's water supply at risk.

 

   Mississippi Lime President Bill Ayers says Ameren is paying his company to take the ash. Ameren Missouri, however, declined to confirm that it's paying.

 

Mo. man charged in drive-by shooting of 4-year-old

Sunday, 31 March 2013 22:53 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A suburban St. Louis man on probation for a drug conviction has been charged with wounding a 4-year-old girl in a drive-by shooting.

23-year-old Nathaniel J. Pool of Ferguson was charged Sunday with six counts of first-degree assault and seven counts of armed criminal action. He's jailed on a $200,000 cash bail.

   No information is listed in online records, and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

 

   Police say Pool fired shots Thursday night from a passing car, injuring the girl as she walked up the steps of a home with her mother. Police say the girl was an unintended victim and that the target was standing nearby. Witnesses identified Pool as the shooter.

   The girl was released Friday from a hospital.
