  •  Charlotte's water supply is tainted by coal ash (6+ / 0-)

    leachates. Governor McCrory, former CEO of Duke power is trying to get the state of NC to settle its lawsuit with Duke power for a very lowball amount. The coal ash continues to leach into the reservoirs above Charlotte and you will be drinking the water that's polluted with arsenic and selenium from the coal ash.

    You might consider drinking filtered or bottled water. Then again, the bottled water might be polluted, too.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
