"Marc Manly, Duke Energy's chief legal officer, said the changes the company made at the Ohio River plant were common maintenance practices at coal-fired power plants to enable them to continue "to deliver reliable and affordable power to our customers."
So, it's a common practice to ignore the law and not obtain permits, while making changes without adding pollution-control equipment?... Sounds like investigations need to be done around Duke's plants to see just how common that is.
