Assembled by the UNC Charlotte Lee College of Engineering, and Chaired by Dr. John L. Daniels, P.E., Professor and Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the National Ash Management Advisory Board (NAMAB) consists of nationally and internationally recognized and published experts with practical experience working with and for the private sector, federal government and academia. The NAMAB provides independent input and advice to Duke Energy Coal Combustion Products (CCP) and Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) organizations, Duke Energy senior management and Duke Energy’s Board of Directors.
On April 5, 2016, NAMAB sent a letter to Mr. Tom Reeder, NC Department of Environmental Quality's Assistant Secretary for the Environment, expressing their consensus view of the proposed risk classifications. Download the letter here.
