BREAKING: Criminal Investigation Launched in Dan River Spill


For those who wonder where the enforcement, if any, for environmental law is at this point, take heart. For those particularly aggrieved and deprived of clean water in Danville, VA, take heart too. And finally, for those of us in NC, West Virginia, PA and other sites of recent environmental degradation, here is some hope… It isn’t huge, but it’s a start.

RALEIGH, N.C. – Federal authorities have launched a criminal investigation into North Carolina’s environmental agency following a massive coal ash spill on the Dan River.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Raleigh issued a grand jury subpoena demanding records from the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. They include emails, memos and reports from 2010 through the Feb. 2 spill.

There’s more here.

DENR has been hammered into the ground by the extreme environmental nihilists who have taken over the state. Finally, we have help standing up to them.

I’d like to see a federal investigation of the gutting of the Jordan lake rules and the complete sell-out of those relying on the reservoir for “clean” water as well.
