Add your voice to N.C. coal ash closure plans

In January, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality held public meetings to help decide the final cleanup plan for six coal ash sites. We need your comments to call for excavation at all six sites!

Duke Energy’s plan is to simply cap the ash in place — where it is sitting in the groundwater — and run away. Don’t let Duke “Cap and Run” from cleaning up its toxic mess. Learn more.

The communities around these six sites have suffered for years from exposure to the toxic heavy metals found in coal ash. Tell DEQ it must require Duke to fully excavate the coal ash at these sites, ending this nightmare once and for all.

This action has ended. Please contact for other ways to get involved.
