STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK R. HERRING

~ On Dan River coal ash situation  ~

Richmond--Attorney General Mark R. Herring released the following statement today on the Dan River coal ash situation:

"Earlier this afternoon, I spoke to Mayor Saunders, City Manager King and other city leaders from Danville about the coal ash spill in the Dan River. I pledged to them my personal support and that of my office if there is anything we can do to protect public health, protect the water supply, and minimize environmental damage. Thus far, Duke Energy appears to be doing the right things in accepting responsibility for this situation, and I told city leaders that they and the people of Southside can count on me to help make sure Duke follows through on their word in the weeks and months ahead."
