Duke Energy finishes ash cleanup in Dan River

Duke Energy says it has finished a cleanup of 2,500 tons of coal ash and sediment from the Dan River in Danville, Va., downriver of a Feb. 2 ash spill.

It’s the largest of the cleanup sites on the Dan, into which tons of ash spilled from Duke’s Dan River power plant. A total of 500 tons of ash and sediment was sucked up from sites near water treatment plants in Danville and South Boston, Va., as well as from the Dan about 2 miles below the spill.

Duke, whose contractors worked under the oversight of the Environmental Protection Agency, said no other deposits will be removed unless monitoring shows it’s necessary. Bruce Henderson
