RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will conduct inspections of all Duke Energy coal ash facilities North Carolina next week. The regulatory agency will also ask Duke to provide engineering and emergency action plans and maps for the facilities and videos of the insides of all pipes at the impoundments. 

 
 “As we work to address coal ash impoundments statewide, we will be taking a comprehensive look at all the infrastructure at these sites to ensure that spills like the one that occurred in Eden never happen again,” said John Skvarla, DENR secretary, in a news release.
 
Duke officials were told this week of the impending inspections. Plans from the Division of Water Resources include mapping and photographing discharge points at the facilities with coal ash ponds and noting the types of discharges and structural integrity of the pipes and other discharge outfalls. DENR reports it will also collect and start analyzing water samples from all pipes. 
 
Between Feb. 20 and March 1, DENR staff conducted visual inspections of the spillways beneath the dams at coal ash impoundments. 
 
“During our visual inspections, we did not see any discoloration or cloudy water that you would typically see if wastewater was leaking into the spillway pipes,” said Tracy Davis, a DENR director. “However, running cameras through every pipe and getting the plans for each site will give us a much better understanding of the construction of those spillway pipes as well as the integrity of the dams and whether there are any problems with these sites.”
