Comments from the Sierra Club on the Department of Energy Emergency Order to Resume Limited Operation at the Potomac River Generating Station in Alexandria, VA

Docket No. EO-05-01: This letter is in response to the Department of Energy Emergency Order to Resume Limited Operation at the Potomac River Generating Station, Alexandria, VA, in Response to Electricity Reliability Concerns in Washington, DC.
We are very disappointed with your decision to allow limited operation of the Mirant Plant. We are rather troubled that, despite the overwhelming scientific evidence of the risks posed by this facility, electrical reliability appears to be taking precedence over public health.
