"Duke Energy Will Spend $93 Million to Settle Clean Air Violations"
"INDIANAPOLIS -- A $93 million court settlement requiring Duke Energy, one of the America's largest electric power companies, to eliminate sulfur dioxide emissions from a coal-fired plant in Indiana, was reached Tuesday, state and federal officials said.
The states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut joined the federal government and two environmental groups in a 1999 lawsuit over pollution from the 560-megawatt Gallagher Station in Floyd County, located across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky. Prevailing winds carry the plant's emissions eastward."Source: ENS, 12/24/2009
