Sierra Club signals intent to sue We Energies after bluff collapse

The Sierra Club on Wednesday took the first step toward suing We Energies for violations of state environmental permits as a result of the bluff collapse and landslide that sent coal ash into Lake Michigan last week.

A 1950s-era landfill of coal ash, created when ash and dirt were used to fill a ravine, gave way at the construction site for the utility’s air pollution control system.
