SELC & Catawba Riverkeeper ask Duke to stop allowing coal ash to pollute Charlotte’s drink

SELC has sent a notice to Duke Energy Carolinas that we will bring suit under the Clean Water Act to stop Duke's coal ash pollution of Mountain Island Lake, the source of drinking water for hundreds of thousands of people in the greater Charlotte area.  SELC is representing the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation, which monitors the site and has brought the pollution to Duke's attention. To date, Duke has taken no action to stop the pollution. Read the press release.
