Coal Ash, your Riverkeeper and national news!

Posted on by admin
On March 17th, 2014 The Rachel Maddow Show reported on the discovery by environmental activists of water being pumped from Duke Energy coal ash ponds into local waterways, and a new report that NC law has been changed to protect Duke’s coal ash pits. Our very own Riverkeeper Kemp Burdette is featured in this news report.

As more and more details “leak” out about this statewide environmental issue we will be on top of it!

Coal Ash Forum – A Call to Action!

Posted on by admin


39,000 tons of coal ash and 27,000 gallons of contaminated water spilled into the Dan River from Duke Energy’s Eden, NC power plant on February 2.
Could it happen here? Are there violations at the Sutton Plant now?  What is the best method for coal ash disposal?  What can we expect when the General Assembly reconvenes?
Find out the answers to these questions and more at the Coal Ash Forum on Monday, April 28 at 7:00pm at the MC Erny Gallery – WHQR Studio (245 North Front Street Wilmington, NC). Our very own Kemp Burdette will be one of the panelists.  Get more information and register to attend HERE!

It is going to take a lot of hard work to get these devastated areas recovered. Will you help us clean up coal ash ponds in the Cape Fear river and throughout NC? Please consider supporting our work with a $5 monthly donation.
