All I Want for Christmas is No ACP
Tell Governor Cooper – NO ACP for the Holidays!
Soon, our North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality will be making its final decision on a major permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
We need your help to send a message to the Governor and officials in Raleigh that North Carolina doesn’t want or need this pipeline.
Help us flood the Governor’s office with Holiday-themed NO ACP postcards. Pick your favorite design at the link here and send a postcard to the Governor. You can download and print at home, or we can send one on your behalf!

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.

Clean Water for NC compiles coal ash news from NC and beyond in a weekly news digest called the “AshUpdates.” To subscribe, click here!
