DEQ Public Meetings on Final Closure of 6 Major NC Coal Ash Sites

As DEQ announced the ranking of 6 large coal ash sites in NC as “low risk” on Nov. 14th, they also announced public “meetings” to give the public a chance to give input on closure plans for these sites. We know that Duke wants to close these sites by “Capping in Place” to save in cleanup costs, but that will only leave the ash looming over communities and leaching toxic contaminants into groundwater, dropping the leash on many major federal coal ash violations.  Clean Water for NC, along with the ACT Against Coal Ash Alliance, calls for complete excavation of ash at these sites and removal to lined, above ground sites on Duke Energy property!

Come out to one or more of these public information meetings to demand that DEQ holds Duke accountable for the toxic coal ash waste in our communities!  DEQ information here.
