coal ash

Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC)

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality has added two more weeks for public feedback on coal ash disposal and recycling.  DEQ held a meeting on that topic in Wilmington last month. The agency decided to extend the comment period after citizens said they wanted more time to provide feedback on the rules.

Duke Energy operated the coal-powered Sutton Plant off U.S. 421 from 1954 until 2013. They then replaced it with a natural gas facility. But coal ash still has a place at the plant. It gets stored there. Now the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality is looking into re-writing the rules for coal ash disposal.

I prefer public radio formats in which there are two stations--one news/talk programming and one music programming. Since the second WHQR station is HD (and not available to all), it makes sense to mix news and music programming on the flagship station. However, I'd love it if the music was more diverse--indie music, singer-songwriters, Alt-Latino, "college music." As it stands, the music programming seems almost entirely focused on older demographics.
