Duke Energy shoveling its coal ash problem onto Chatham County

by Carole Henry

Bonlee, NC – Wow! Isn’t it wonderful? A company who has shown year after year that it is incapable of safely storing its own waste on its own site has gotten a permit from the state to store that same waste product in the middle of communities in Chatham County.

coal ashThat we the people are not allowed to stop this by the state?  Whose back pocket is the Department of Energy in?  The state and that committee, as well as Department of Energy should be held accountable. Our water and water table will be effected by fracking and the waste dumping of coal ash.  The biggies in both the state and Department of Energy do not care. If they did, they would reduce their waste and safely store that waste on their own site.
