Duke’s Final Closure Plans

This Spring of 2019, the NC Department of Environmental Quality will announce the final closure plans for six remaining sites, including the 12 million coal ash basin held at Belews Creek. We will continue to push for DEQ to require for Duke to excavate the coal ash and store it in safe, lined landfills on Duke’s property.
