Coal Ash - EPA Public Meeting
Representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be in Danville on Tuesday to holding a community briefing about the Duke Energy coal ash spill in Eden, N.C., that has polluted the Dan River.
The coal ash spill on Feb. 2 dumped up to 27 million gallons of water from a coal ash storage basin into the Dan River, along with up to 82,000 tons of ash, turning the river gray.
The meeting will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. in Danville City Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building on Patton Street.
Joined by responders from other state and local agencies, the EPA representatives will provide an update on the spill and answer questions about the response.
