Mar 20, 2014 — Hi Everyone - This is significant news and gives me hope we can get DENR involved out here in Western NC. More to come as local leaders have asked me to a meeting next week.

DENR cites Duke Energy for illegal dumping at Moncure coal ash site
State regulators on Thursday cited Duke Energy for pumping an estimated 61 million gallons of wastewater from coal ash ponds at a retired power plant in Moncure into a tributary of the Cape Fear River. The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources can levy fines for illegal discharges but it must first give Duke 10 days to respond to the citation.
