Judge Orders UW To Follow Power Plant Law

Wisconsin's disgraceful plummet from the summit of environmentalism may have hit rock bottom Wednesday and bounced a bit off the deck when a federal judge ordered the UW and state to bring the downtown campus Charter St. power plant into compliance with federal clean air law.

That had been violated for years: more details here.

What an embarrassment, that our sifting and winnowing and regulating officials decided they didn't need to follow the law.

And what gratitude is owed the Sierra Club for dragging the plant's operators into court so that they stop polluting Dane County's air and water.

This blog reported on the Charter St. violations several times a few months ago. One example is here.
