Duke Energy removes coal ash near Dan River Steam Station at Town Creek



July 3, 2014

Duke Energy has completed the cleanup of a coal ash deposit and river sediment at a site approximately two miles down river from the Dan River Steam Station.

The location is where Town Creek meets the Dan River. The coal ash and sediment had accumulated on a sand bar.

Crews excavated 258 tons of the material from the site over the last week. The removed material was taken to a landfill in Person County, N.C., where coal ash and sediment from previous removal operations has been taken. The landfill is permitted to accept this type of material. It is double-lined with groundwater monitoring.

Operations also continue near the Schoolfield Dam in Danville, Va. Crews there have removed more than 2,000 tons of coal ash and river sediment since operations began on May 6. Dredging at the site, adjacent to Abreu-Grogan Park, is scheduled to be completed this month. After that, demobilization and restoration activities at the park are expected to take several weeks.

All operations are under the direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are being conducted in conjunction with state and other federal agencies.
