In 2014, toxic coal ash spilled into the Dan River through this pipe.

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality will be accepting written comments for a wastewater permit at the Belews Creek Steam Station until November 15. The permit would allow Duke Energy to dump untreated toxic wastewater into the Dan River and would make the leaks of contaminated wastewater from the coal ash pond into legal discharges.

If you want to have your voice heard in person, the public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov.15 at the Stokes County Courthouse at 1013 Main St. in Danbury. Speaker registration will begin at 5:00 p.m. We hope you’ll come and join your neighbors in speaking out!

Take Action Now!

Tell DEQ not to let Duke Energy poison our rivers and our communities!
