Coal Ash Information Forum – LIVE! (11/17/2014)

We’re LIVE! at the Institute for a Coal Ash Spill Community Information Forum. The meeting runs from 6PM to 8PM and you’ll get the only LIVE coverage of this event here on SouthsideCentral. Here’s the media release on what is going to happen today…

You are invited to a Community Information Forum where you will have an opportunity to express your concerns about the February 2, 2014 Dan River coal ash release, to hear updates about what has occurred to date, and to offer your ideas about what could be done to further address your concerns. Duke Energy has asked the University of Virginia’s Institute for Environmental Negotiation and Virginia Cooperative Extension to conduct this Community Information Forum. The meeting will be facilitated by Frank Dukes of the University of Virginia.

Following the February 2, 2014 coal ash release into the Dan River, Duke Energy has worked in collaboration with local governments and regulatory agencies to protect public drinking water, gather data on Dan River water quality and natural resources, and remove ash from the river. At this Community Information Forum Duke Energy will provide information on river monitoring and ash removal. Trustees administering the Natural Resources Damage Assessment and Restoration process will provide information on assessment of injuries to natural resources and human use services, and restoration project selection. In addition to the efforts focused on the Dan River, Duke Energy is seeking input regarding the community impacts of the coal ash release and ideas for how to address these impacts.

Be sure to refresh this page often to get the latest happenings, commentary and photos. We’ll add more bonus coverage when we clean this article up tonight.
