Duke Energy reports water quality continuing to improve at Dan River station Test results from water samples analyzed by Duke Energy demonstrate that water quality continues to improve downstream of the Dan River Steam Station. On Sunday, a break in a stormwater pipe beneath the ash basin caused a release of ash basin water and ash into the river. Drinking water supplies remain safe. Tonight, the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DENR) released sampling results for a number of water quality parameters and the results are consistent with the analysis performed by Duke Energy. The company continues to work closely with local communities, the state of North Carolina, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to share its sampling results for comparison with their analysis. Flows to the river decreased again and work to reach the location of the broken pipe continues. Between 3,000 and 5,000 tons of rock will be used to build the ramp into the basin.
