A coalition of environmental groups is asking a North Carolina judge to dismiss part of lawsuit over pollution leaking from Duke Energy's coal ash dumps.
The North Carolina Senate is trying to push through legislation that will close all coal ash ponds in the state. The bill would also allow for clean-up of certain coal ash sites, including the Sutton Plant site right here in southeastern North Carolina. Environmental activists wonder if the bill goes far enough.
A federal judge says a lawsuit accusing Duke Energy coal ash pits of polluting a lake near Wilmington can move forward. The Southern Environmental Law Center filed a lawsuit last year on behalf of environmental groups, saying the toxic waste was polluting Sutton Lake and violating the federal Clean Water Act.
