Charlotte Observer: Asheville Airport uses Duke coal ash as fill material

The Charlotte Observer reported Friday that since 2008, the Asheville airport has been receiving the ash from Duke Energy.

Duke gives the airport the ash for free, the Observer reported, and the airport uses it as fill material for construction projects.

Charlotte officials are considering burying coal ash at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. In Asheville, the sight and sounds of ash-filled trucks passing by have become a normal part of life.
