Got an e-mail this morning from "Keep The Ban" about a meeting with EPA over the coal ash leak in Eden, NC that has polluted the Dan River and environs, including drinking water of municipalities downstream.

It's been diaried a fair amount here on the GOS. There are more, I only searched "coal ash" to point to the diaries for those who may be unaware.

Meeting info below the orange water bottle:

e-mail from Keep The Ban:

Representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be in Danville on Tuesday to holding a community briefing about the Duke Energy coal ash spill in Eden, N.C., that has polluted the Dan River.
The coal ash spill on February 2nd dumped up to 27 million gallons of water from a coal ash storage basin into the Dan River, along with up to 82,000 tons of ash, turning the river gray.
The meeting will be held from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Danville City Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building on Patton Street.
February 11, 2014 6:30-8:00 pm
Danville City Council Chambers (4th Floor) 427 Patton St, Danville, VA 24541

Joined by responders from other state and local agencies, the EPA representatives will provide an update on the spill and answer questions about the response.
We hope to see you there,

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
