Lawsuit filed against NV Energy regarding coal-fired plant

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 8, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- NV Energy is being sued by the Sierra Club and the Moapa Band of Paiutes for what they call contaminated land.

They claim the NV Energy Reid Gardner coal-fired power plant is polluting their air.

The plant is within a few hundred yards of the plant and they claim contaminants in the area exceed state standards.

NV Energy released a statement on the lawsuit which reads, "We cannot comment on pending litigation. We can say that our Reid Gardner Plant is in full compliance with state and federal laws."
