Chalk Point power plant, one of two power plants in Prince George's County currently.

A community in rural Prince George’s County recently filed a federal civil rights complaint in response to plans to build a third power plant in one community. Activists and environmental groups say the location of the plant disproportionately affects the primarily African American community. The power company says the plant will be state of the art and one of the cleanest in the nation, and that the proposal went through all the proper approvals by the state. We explore the issues.
