Immediately after the disastrous coal-ash spill in Eden, North Carolina, Greenpeace, Appalachian Voices, and other groups were on the ground, assessing the damage and mobilizing a response. This video testifies to what Duke Energy and North Carolina’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources tried to keep covered up for as long as they could.

To get involved yourself, urge Duke Energy’s CEO Lynn Good to clean up toxic coal ash pits.
