Here’s the latest in the civil court case involving Duke Energy and the clean-up of coal-ash ponds. Click here  for background on the case.
Wake Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway denied a request Thursday from the utility company to delay a previous order  to start immediately dealing with contamination from coal-ash ponds Duke maintains around the state.
Duke had asked that the clean-up be delayed while it appealed Ridgeway’s decision earlier this month to order Duke to take immediate action to stop contamination by coal-ash ponds. Today’s order means that Duke must be forward with plans to clean up the ponds.
Below are copies of Ridgeway’s order, as well a motion from environmental groups asking that the stay be denied.
