The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that coal ash is leaking from a third pipe at Duke Energy’s Dan River Steam Station.

 

Levels of arsenic, lead, beryllium and other coal-ash toxins exceed state regulations, says Kevin Eichinger, EPA’s on-site coordinator for the spill on the Dan River. He says EPA is waiting for the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources to determine whether this leak is a new violation of state water regulations and what action should be taken.
