Holding illegal polluters accountable.
GenOn Energy illegally dumped manganese, selenium and other pollutants into the Conemaugh River for years, with potentially toxic effects on wildlife. In 2007, we sued to stop the pollution. In 2011, a judge ruled the company liable for a staggering 8,684 violations of the Clean Water Act. GenOn was ordered to end the pollution and pay a record-breaking $3.75 million to restore the Conemaugh.
