EPA, Duke Energy reach deal to clean Dan River coal ash

The EPA says it has reached agreement with Duke Energy (DUK) to clean up its mess from the February coal ash spill into the Dan River that coated 70 miles of the waterway in North Carolina and Virginia with toxic sludge.

The EPA will oversee the cleanup in consultation with federal wildlife officials under provisions in the Superfund law, while DUK will reimburse the U.S. government for its oversight costs, including those incurred in the emergency response to the spill.

The agreement does not mention any fines imposed against DUK.
