EPA says Duke Energy done dredging coal ash from Dan River

  • Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) has completed removal of coal ash from the Dan River months after a massive spill at a North Carolina power plant, EPA officials said yesterday.
  • DUK dredged up ~2,500 tons of ash and contaminated sediment that settled against a dam in Danville, Va., and another 500 tons was recovered from other pockets in the river and settling tanks at two municipal water treatment plants in Virginia.
  • The EPA says if more large deposits of contamination are later discovered, DUK will be required to remove them.
  • DUK estimates ~39K tons of coal ash spewed into the Dan after a drainage pipe collapsed Feb. 2 at a waste dump, turning the river gray for more than 70 miles.
