Duke Energy Proposes Coal Ash Projects


When a power plant burns coal, most of the ash from the coal is not incinerated. Instead, that coal ash can sit at the bottom of a furnace, and can contain potentially harmful pollutants, including arsenic.

In December of last year, Duke Energy petitioned the Indiana Department of Environmental Management to allow the company to store coal ash at four of its facilities, all nearby major Indiana waterways.

WFHB News Director Wes Martin spoke with Duke Energy representative Dawn Santoianni and Earth Justice attorney Jennifer Cassel about the potential coal ash projects.
