'Duke Energy is guilty, nine times over, for its handling of coal ash in North Carolina.' this statement alone should make anyone with any common sense to say "Don't Dump Coal ash on our communities!"
For the record Lee County HAS NO COAL ASH .Lee County residents and Landowners Don't want any Coal Ash dumping on our watershed ! Yes I said Watershed a huge one about a 1/3 of our county wide , the same one connected to Cape Fear River the water source for Several counties .
part of a letter from Dr. G. Fred Lee, world-renowned expert on landfilling and its impacts on the environment. (http://www.gfredlee.com/)
Lee’s five-page document closed with, “Overall, based on our expertise and professional experience, we strongly recommend that the state of North Carolina not proceed with permitting of coal combustion ash disposal in Subtitle D landfills in clay mines because such wastes will eventually lead to groundwater pollution by the waste-associated components.”
WE will continue to fight at Environmentalee.org
Once known as the heart of NC ,Lee County is now being the target for Doom. This is an Environmental Injustice to the people in the surrounding areas . They want to dump Millions of TONS of Coal ash inside a rubber burrito and place it on our Watershed .
This is Not a done deal and we will fight this from happening to our county and state ! BREDL.org has a better sollution and has sent it to Duke and DENR . For the record there are good renewable jobs out there .
Come learn how we can stop this at environmentalee.org on facebook too.
The commenting period has been Extended till Sept 30th ! http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mining-and-en…
Rafi-USA has wonderful information on forced pooling . the org BREDL has some great information also .
These rules were promised to be the best in the states... We the people thought that meant for us ,instead it is for the G&O companies .
Landowners are not important to the MEC , landowners were only mentioned 2 times in the 126 rules !
Fact: the MEC said it , Compulsory pooling is a law setup to Entice the drillers !
As I said at the meeting , " The MEC promised the best rules in the country ! We the people thought they meant for us but they meant the G&O companies !"
Forced pooling is Un American , it is NOT TO PROTECT the LANDOWNERS it is to ATTRACT the Drillers!
For the record a Lot of counties People in NC are saying No even if their commissioners and council wont do it for them . Like in Lee County , we have many people wanting fracking not to happen , but we can't get help from our government officials ?
Wow , I just saw this article in a discussion about Chatham Park . I noticed on the map http://www.indyweek.com/pdf/011310/map_cha… , you show as the undeveloped projects , at least 1/2 of those are also on Shale . So it looks like Chatham county could have fracking wells and natural gas developement instead of Mc-mansions .
