Coal Impoundment Project Director & CEO Davitt McAteer To Testify Before Congress

2/10/2009

WHEELING, WV, Feb. 9, 2009 - Davitt McAteer, CEO of Wheeling Jesuit University’s Center for Educational Technologies and the National Technology Transfer Center, will be testifying on Capitol Hill about how the Coal Impoundment Project might provide some guidance on environmental and safety issues for ash ponds as Congress moves forward with investigating the issue.

McAteer is presenting information on the project to the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the National Resources Committee, chaired by Congressman Nick Rahall.

Coal waste is expected to increase in the coming years, as the demand for energy grows.
