Coal Ash Issue

There are 14 coal ash sites around the state, and most have more than one unlined lagoon. Many, like Dan River, have dams rated as High Hazard. And all of the lagoons leak. In fact, North Carolina recently sued Duke for unpermitted discharges and violations of groundwater standards at all 14 sites, including Dan River.
