Coal Ash

Coal Ash in NC

Since the February 2014 massive spill of tens of thousands of tons of coal ash and 27 million gallons of contaminated wastewater from a Duke Energy coal ash pit into the Dan River, lawmakers, regulators, the media, and the public have paid more attention to the threat of coal ash waste stored in unlined pits across NC. Clean Water for NC believes the storage and disposal of coal ash waste is an environmental justice issue, often impacting the most vulnerable communities, and we are committed to working with those communities to organize for just solutions to NC’s coal ash mess. We are an active partner with the statewide Alliance of Carolinians Together Against Coal Ash (ACT Against Coal Ash), a community-led alliance of representatives from communities next to the massive coal ash pits at Duke Energy power plants and near planned future coal ash landfills.
