Toxic Tour on the Cape Fear

Event Date: 
Sat, Nov 09
9:30 to 11:30

By the end of the year the Sutton Coal Plant in Wilmington will move away from coal, one of the dirtiest fuels from start to finish. But for decades, tons of toxic coal waste containing harmful heavy metals, have been dumped into unlined pits that threaten local clean water. And Duke Energy Progress still has not decided or informed our community what they plan to do about this legacy of pollution.

Join Cape Fear Group of the Sierra Club for a trip on the Cape Fear River to the Sutton Coal Plant on Wilmington Water Tours’ comfortable catamaran.  

Sierra Club Beyond Coal Representative Kelly Martin and local Riverkeeper Kemp Burdette will be onboard to educate the community on the dangers of coal waste and what we can do to make sure Duke Energy deals with its pollution.

We deserve clean, safe drinking water!  Sign up for our “Toxic Tour” today and learn how to protect our vital water resources.

Saturday, November 9th 9:30am – 11:30am -  rain or shine!  The cost is $10.
