Mayo Coal Plant – Comment Today

Mayo Steam Electric PlantProgress Energy operates two large coal-fired power plants in Person County. The Mayo Steam Electric Plant discharges to Mayo Lake, a popular place for boating and fishing. However, the power plant discharges large amounts of harmful metals into the lake….Mercury (a neurotoxin), Boron, Thallium, Manganese (a neurotoxin at high doses), and Selenium.

The NC Environmental Management Commission is proposing to issue a “Special Order by Consent” for the Mayo Plant, allowing Progress to discharge higher amounts of these metals without penalty while Progress studies and constructs a new treatment system. Your comments are needed by April 6, because the deal lacks solid deadlines, and the plant could have exceptions on the amount of metals they pour into Mayo Lake for 5 years under the current plan!
