As Duke Energy continues to try to plug a massive leak in a coal ash storage pond at its closed Eden, N.C., Dan River Steam Station, environmental agencies and groups are monitoring the water that continues to seep into the Dan River carrying coal ash from a containment basin.

Meghan Musgrave, spokesperson for Duke Energy, said the pipe was installed about the same time the plant was built in the 1940s; it carried storm water to the Dan River. The coal ash basins were installed in the 1960s, with the primary basin placed over the pipe.
