Duke Energy to pay Virginia $2.5 million for Dan River spill

Duke Energy has agreed to pay Virginia a $2.5 million settlement for its February 2014 coal ash spill into the Dan River.

The spill at a retired power plant in Eden dumped up to 39,000 tons of ash into the river, which flows north into Virginia. Ash flowed 80 miles downstream to Virginia’s Kerr Reservoir.
