‘What science demanded’: Duke Energy ordered to excavate all coal ash in North Carolina

This article discusses Duke Energy being ordered to excavate all coal ash in North Carolina.

State environmental officials ruled Monday that Duke Energy must dig up all of the coal ash near the Belews Creek Steam Station for disposal in a lined landfill or for possible recycling.

They rejected the “cap-in-place” technology at Belews Creek and five other North Carolina sites where the utility said that alternative could both protect the environment and save money.
