State regulators and Duke Energy say to move 100 million tons of coal ash could cost almost $10 million. "Paul Newton, Duke's North Carolina president of operations, told lawmakers that 20-foot trucks, leaving the site every three minutes, working 12 hours a day, could not quickly remove it. 'The Dan River site would take about two years to be excavated and remove - and that is our smallest site,' Newton said.
