Greenpeace volunteer and United Mountain Defense member Bonnie Swinford holds a picture of the devastation of the 2008 coal ash spill in Kingston, Tennessee, during a vigil in Knoxville, Tenn., Oct. 27, 2010. The vigil was held before the final of eight public hearings conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on two proposals for the regulation of coal ash disposal. One proposal would list coal ash as hazardous waste and the other as non-hazardous.
