SELC and Catawba Riverkeeper Comment on Proposed Sweetheart Settlement between Duke and DENR
The NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources has proposed a consent order that would allow Duke to continue to pollute Mountain Island Lake without a permit for seepages of hundreds of thousands of gallons per day of polluted water into the primary source of drinking water for Charlotte, Gastonia, Mt. Holly, Pineville, Matthews, Mint Hill and other areas. Catawba Riverkeeper and the Southern Environmental Law Center are objecting to the proposed consent order.
