Coal ash ponds at Dominion Virginia Power’s Bremo Power Plant are leaking contaminants into the environment, according to a report from scientists at Duke University.

The study, conducted in the summer and fall of 2015 by scientists at the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke and funded by the Southern Environmental Law Center, showed that 21 facilities in five different states are leaching coal ash contaminants.  In Fluvanna, the team tested water from a creek above the power plant and then below the plant, where the creek joined the James River. Water from the James River itself was tested as well.
