"Virginia: Governor Expects Payment for Spill"

"DANVILLE, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Tuesday he expects Duke Energy to fully compensate Virginia for a massive coal ash spill into the Dan River that turned collection basins at Danville's water treatment plant gray.

McAuliffe spoke after he toured the city's treatment plant and was assured the drinking water for 18,000 customers were well within safe-drinking standards based on multiple municipal, federal and independent water testing.

'I'm going to have a little glass of water myself,' McAuliffe said at the conclusion of the tour of the plant, which overlooks the Dan River."
