Power-generating Plants in Mid-Atlantic Region and their Air Emissions on U.S. EPA Map

An interactive map of power-generating plants in the mid-Atlantic region (including Virginia)—allowing users to click on a location to see emissions of carbon dioxide and gases—is available from the EPA at http://www.epa.gov/reg3artd/globclimate/r3pplants.html.  The map is useful tool for considering the U.S. EPA’s proposed regulation on carbon emissions from power plants (announced June 2, 2014) or any other issues involving the connections among energy generation, air emissions, and water resources impacts (from those air emissions that eventually reach waterways).
