"Contamination Lawsuits Push Duke Energy To Address Pollution"

"Look no further than the Carolina coast to see what kind of damage a coal-fired power plant can do to underground sources of drinking water."

"Massive groundwater contamination is rendering unusable the private wells of about 400 people in a Wilmington-area community known as Flemington. A potentially toxic plume of arsenic and other chemicals is leaking underground from a dump site at the Sutton Power Plant owned by Duke Energy, and it is heading toward those wells.

A corporate mea culpa of sorts is on its way, too."
