Duke Energy issued the following statement regarding initial ash basin classifications issued by the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ).

BACKGROUND: As part of the Coal Ash Administration Act (CAMA), the NCDEQ must recommend classifications for all coal ash basins throughout North Carolina to the Coal Ash Administration Commission. Four sites received a high priority designation in the 2014 state law: Asheville Plant (Asheville, N.C.), Dan River Steam Station (Eden, N.C.), Riverbend Steam Station (Mount Holly, N.C.) and Sutton Plant (Wilmington, N.C.). Today’s recommended classifications address the remaining 24 basins and will drive closure decisions and the plan for each site. The CAMA comprises very specific criteria that must be evaluated to determine these classifications and provides an opportunity for public input.

We appreciate the work that has gone into developing these preliminary recommendations. We’re particularly interested in understanding how the state is balancing the requirements of the Coal Ash Administration Act (CAMA) to ensure the environment is well protected without unnecessary cost and impact to customers and communities.

Duke Energy Corporation, together with its auxiliaries, operates as an energy company in the United States and Latin America. It operates through three segments: Regulated Utilities, International Energy, and Commercial Power.
