The Environmental Protection Agency wanted to limit distribution of the list to members of Congress, but agreed to make the list public under pressure from Sen. Barbara Boxer. The list included 44 coal-fired power plant waste sites in 10 states with a high hazard potential, including 12 sites in North Carolina, seven in Kentucky and a large storage pond in Pennsylvania.
