Elected officials explore different methods for disposing of coal ash
And leave us even more confused than before:
Duke Energy is now talking publicly about coal ash, but the conversations with Charlotte City Council revolved around the issue of how to remove it from the River Bend Power Plant. The City and Duke are exploring the possibility of moving the coal ash by truck from Gaston County to land near Charlotte Douglas International.
State Senator Jeff Tarte of Mecklenburg County was also part of the tour, and he wants to learn more about the idea. "What we really want to do is reuse the material not have it stock piled and put into landfills, " Tarte said. Governor McCrory said, "It's going somewhere, and wherever it goes we've got to do it in a safe environmentally and most affordable way we can. I'm open to any solution."
Fixed. But this doesn't prove McCrory isn't crazy. ;)
