Take Action: Tell Duke Energy to Stop Polluting the Broad River with Coal Ash!

Take Action: Tell Duke Energy to Stop Polluting the Broad River with Coal Ash!

Duke Energy’s coal ash pits at the Cliffside Power Plant (James E. Rogers Energy Complex) are polluting the Broad River and its tributaries with toxic heavy metals. There are two coal ash ponds right next to the Broad River that contain over eight million tons of toxic coal ash. Despite the fact that Duke Energy has a lined landfill across the street capable of handling all their toxic coal from these ponds, they refuse to do the right thing. Tell Duke Energy to clean up their mess!
