EDEN, N.C. – Clean-water advocates held a rally on World Water Day at Island Ford Landing along the Smith River here Saturday, where attendees enjoyed the warm weather, hot dogs and bluegrass/traditional music by a trio of talented young girls.

Several environmental organizations hosted the event to call on Duke Energy to remove its coal ash ponds from waterways and provide information on how it plans to clean up last month’s coal ash spill at Duke’s old Dan River Steam Station in Eden, which dumped 39,000 tons of the toxic brew into the Dan River on Feb. 2.
