Planting Season is Almost Here! DRBA invites local farmers to talk about their concerns related to the Duke Energy coal ash spill. We want to hear from you about issues related to high water events and your intake from the Dan River for irrigation and the health of your livestock and cattle now - and in the future.
Representatives with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be visiting South Boston on Thursday, February 20 from 6:30-8pm to field questions and listen to community concerns in the wake of the Duke Energy coal ash spill into the Dan River.
