1. Cleaning up 53 million tons of coal ash
SELC is realizing the largest clean-up of industrial pollution in the Southeast, ever. To date, we have secured sweeping agreements to safely store coal ash in South Carolina. We have compelled Duke Energy to clean up 7 of its 14 sites in North Carolina–and have active enforcement suits aimed at the rest. At our prompting, the state of Tennessee filed suit for clean water violations at TVA’s Gallatin plant–and is requiring a statewide review of TVA’s coal ash sites. SELC is now engaged in litigation to clean up three coal ash sites in Virginia.
