18:06 EDTDUKDuke Energy: North Carolina coal plants 'safe and performing as designed'
Duke Energy announced that the company has completed ash basin related pipe inspections at its North Carolina coal plants and shared those results with the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The third-party inspections demonstrate that the infrastructure is safe and performing as designed, but some areas of water infiltration were identified. Based on this assessment, the company is already developing engineering plans to repair or close certain pipes and to continue monitoring the others. Following the Dan River incident in February, the company engaged outside engineering firms to conduct inspections of pipes at its active and retired coal plants. "Our highest priority remains the safe operation of our facilities and the health and well-being of the communities and customers we serve," said Lynn Good, Duke Energy president and CEO. "These pipe inspections, and the steps we're taking to address any issues, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to safely managing coal ash at all of our basins." In a news release today NCDENR confirmed "State officials did not identify any imminent public health or safety hazards..." The agency issued eight Notices of Deficiency and requested engineering assessments and repair plans for pipes at Marshall Steam Station in Catawba County, Riverbend and Allen Steam Stations in Gaston County, Buck Steam Station in Rowan County and Cliffside Steam Station in Rutherford and Cleveland counties. In addition, NCDENR issued three inspection letters requesting additional information on pipes where no leaks were detected at the Buck, Riverbend and Marshall Steam Stations. "We will continue working with the agency to secure the necessary permits to carry out our work and will continue to be responsive to state officials as we all address this important issue for North Carolina," said Good.

05:07 EDTDUKDuke Energy making progress restoring power caused by winter storm
Damage assessment efforts have gone well and crews continue to restore power to Duke Energy customers affected by this week's winter storm. Currently, more than 1,800 line personnel, supported by thousands of additional resources, are working on the restoration effort. As of early this evening, power had been restored to nearly 150,000 customers. Additional icing and the rebound effect of thawing tree limbs on power lines today caused additional outages. Road conditions also affected crews' ability to safely assess and restore power in some areas. The company expects to have storm-related outages restored by late Wednesday evening. However, most customers will be restored sooner. There may be isolated, scattered outages remaining beyond this time, depending on individual cases. Based on the estimated time of restoration, families who have special medical needs or elderly members should consider making alternate arrangements as needed.
