Coal slag has become a new problem in the United States.

Coal slag can cause health problems, and it can pollute the environment.

Coal slags, also known as coal dust, can leach carbon dioxide from the ground and are the source of a new coal dust problem in parts of the United State.

It can cause respiratory illnesses and other health problems in the lungs and skin, and the chemicals are poisonous to wildlife.

Coal dust can also leach mercury into the water supply.

Coal ash is a byproduct of coal mining.

When coal slags get into waterways, the slags can spread to other fish and wildlife, such as the endangered red-sided bass and muskox.

Coal-related deaths and illnesses can also increase as the coal industry expands.

Coal mining and slag mining in the South are now the largest source of coal in the U.S., accounting for about a quarter of all coal mined.

While the new pollution problem could cause an increase in coal production, it could also have unintended consequences, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Coal companies are already required to report pollution in the waterways they mine, and coal ash and slags must be cleaned up.

The EPA’s new rule, which is set to go into effect in 2021, requires coal companies to report coal ash pollution and slagged slag to the EPA, which must report the data to the states.

But it’s not clear how the EPA will use the information.

There’s a lot of work to be done in the state of Wyoming to clean up coal ash slag.

It’s estimated that up to 7 million tons of slag are dumped in the Elk River every year, and that the slag accumulates in rivers, lakes and streams, where it’s harmful to fish, wildlife and the environment, according the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.

We’re not going to stop, and I hope we can get it fixed in a way that works for everyone.
