SOMERSET, Mass. -- Three environmental groups announced on Friday that they intend to sue the owner of Brayton Point Station for alleged violations of the federal Clean Air Act.
Conservation Law Foundation, Clean Water Action and Toxics Action Center said they notified Dominion Energy New England that they will file a lawsuit over emissions from the 50-year-old coal- and oil-burning plant.
The plant, according to a press release, is exceeding limit on soots, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide, and is violating acid rain restrictions.

BOSTON — Children may be at greater risk for mercury from tuna than previously thought, according to a new report.
The Tuna Surprise report, released by Mercury Policy Project and Clean Water Action, examined the mercury levels of canned tuna sold to schools and assessed children’s exposure from the canned meat.
Canned tuna is by far the largest source of methylmercury in the average American diet and accounts for nearly one-third of total exposure to the toxic mercury compound, the report said.
MPP tested the mercury content of 59 samples, representing eight brands of tuna, sold to schools in 11 states around the country, including Massachusetts.
