When nearly 30,000 tons of coal ash poured through a broken Duke Energy storm water pipe and into the Dan River in North Carolina earlier this month, it marked the third largest spill of its kind in U.S. history.

But that spill was much smaller compared to an accident in Tennessee six years ago. From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Jeff Tiberii of WUNC reports on what changes came about after that disaster and what could now be in store for North Carolina.
