The Potomac Riverkeeper Network is opposed to an on-site landfill for coal ash currently stored at Possum Point Power Station near Dumfries, said Potomac Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks.

The coal ash pond is near residential neighborhoods and waterways, including the Potomac River, and would not be suitable for a landfill, Naujoks said. A byproduct of burning coal is dangerous, he said.

General Assembly bipartisan legislation proposed Jan. 24 would require Dominion Energy to remove coal ash at Possum Point and other locations around the state and recycle a portion of it, but some Prince William County residents remain concerned about how the coal ash will be handled if the legislation is signed into law.
