Down East Coal Ash Coalition Meets Tonight

A local group has new concerns about the health risks associated with Duke Energy’s coal ash pits.

Bobby Jones with the Down East Coal Ash Coalition says Duke Energy is hoping to recycle the coal ash for use in the concrete industry, but that means the carbon must first be burned out of the coal ash to make it marketable.

Some wonder what that would mean for air quality.

Jones says representatives North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality is planning to attend the coalition’s meeting tonight.

The Down East Coal Ash Coalition holds its monthly meeting at 6 PM tonight, Thursday, June 14, at the Wayne County Public Library at 1001 E. Ash Street in Goldsboro.
