Dean Approaching Possum Point
Possum point coal ash pond
Introducing Riverkeeper Dean Najouks
As the Lower Potomac Riverkeeper, Dean Naujoks contends with many sources of pollution that threaten the condition of the river. One of these sources, the Coal Ash Disposal Ponds at Possum Point Power Plant, has not only drawn the attention of Naujoks, but also that of local residents, environmental activists, and state legislators.
