Duke Energy Appeals Fine Issued by North Carolina Environmental Regulators
Apr 9 15
Duke Energy appealed an unprecedented fine issued by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NC DENR), arguing, among other things, that actions already taken by the company make the penalty unnecessary and excessive. The company is asking that the fine be dismissed. On March 10, 2015, the environmental regulator fined the company $25.1 million for groundwater violations at the L.V. Sutton Steam Electric Plant in Wilmington. The appeal, filed with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings, describes a number of instances where the company believes NC DENR's actions violated state law, the regulator's own rules and procedures, public policy and the longstanding interpretation of the regulations, including: Fining the company for 1,822 days of alleged groundwater violations despite having sample results for just 27 days. Creating an entirely new methodology to calculate the fine that dramatically increased the size of the penalty, making it $24 million higher than similar fines issued by NC DENR. Failure to consider naturally occurring substances and other potential sources of groundwater contamination in the area.
