MDU Resources – Coal – 2010 (status: 40.0%)

Coal combustion waste (CCW) is a by‐product of burning coal that contains high concentrations of arsenic, mercury, heavy metals and other toxins that pollution control equipment filters out of smokestacks. Across the country, over 130 million tons of CCW are being stored in surface waste ponds, impoundments and abandoned mines.

Shareholders request that the Board prepare a report, at reasonable cost and omitting proprietary information, on the company’s efforts, above and beyond legal compliance, to reduce environmental and health hazards associated with coal combustion waste ponds, impoundments and mines, and how those efforts reduce risks to the company’s finance and operations.
