Thanks to the We Love Mountain Island Lake group for hosting this town hall meeting on the Riverbend coal ash pond and the risk from Duke Energy coal ash ponds around the state.
Thanks to the program participants Sara Benke, Dee and George Hamm, Rhiannon Fionn Bowman, Sam Perkins, Rep. Rodney Moore, Rep. John Torbett, and Monica Embrey. Recognition and thanks to Senator Joel Ford for attending and Rep. Charles Jeter who joined via the phone. Duke Energy, NC DENR, and Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities were invited but declined to attend to answer questions.
And a BIG THANK YOU to the citizens that attended and spoke out to our elected officials.
Here is video coverage from WCCB TV, WSOC TV, and an article from today’s Charlotte Observer.
More to follow on what you can do to join in getting Duke Energy to clean up these hazards and accept the financial burden for years of making profits off this bad solution to burning coal.
