This week, the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources, DENR, is testing fish tissue in the Dan River for contamination from the Duke Energy coal ash spill earlier this month.  The Southern Environmental Law Center claims they warned Duke Energy and DENR of a potential spill last year. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with Jeff Tiberii, WUNC's Greensboro Bureau Chief about new developments with Duke Energy's coal ash spill.
