CASPER – Wyoming is home to some of the worst coal ash contamination in the country, according to a new report from a pair of environmental groups.

Authored by the Environmental Integrity Project and Earthjustice, the report ranks the Naughton and Jim Bridger power plants – both located in southwestern Wyoming and owned by Rocky Mountain Power parent company PacifiCorp – as the No. 3 and No. 4 most polluted U.S. coal ash sites.
