The U.S. Department of Labor is asking a federal judge to shut down a Barbour County coal slurry impoundment because they say it's too dangerous for workers.

They claim the owners of the 101 North Hollow Coal Refuse Impoundment near Century aren't following federal laws, and they're ignoring violations and fines.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration labeled it a high hazard, meaning a failure could result in death.
MSHA said the slurry wasn't certified for structural integrity the last two years.

Just an excuse for the Dept of Labor to continue Obama's shutting down all businesses in the state and country until the entire country is under his control. Liberals want all of us working for the govt; then they can control us. Our governor should tell Dept of Labor idiots to pass the word to Obama that WV is NOT shutting down our coal mines or any other thing they hate just because it goes against their "socialist" agenda!! We going to start shutting down every job that someone has been injured on or died doing? Uh, restaurants and banks have had people die and get injured. What a stupid bunch we have in leadership roles. People it's way past time to get these children out of office and vote those with some common sense who aren't such whiney little cowards.
