    This aerial photo taken at Duke Energy’s Cape Fear Plant on March 10, 2014, by the environmental group WaterKeeper Alliance shows a large crack in the earthen dam holding back millions of tons of toxic coal ash and contaminated waste water. North Carolina regulators inspected the site twice in the following days, but now concede they failed to notice the crack clearly marked with metal stakes and bright orange streamers. State officials say they knew nothing of the potential hazard until Duke reported the crack on March 20, after the company was cited for illegally pumping 61 million gallons of contaminated wastewater into the Cape Fear River. The crack has since been repaired. (AP Photo/WaterKeeper Alliance, Rick Dove)

    FILE - In a Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014 file photo, Duke Energy engineers and contractors survey the site of a coal ash spill at the Dan River Power Plant in Eden, N.C., as state and federal environmental officials continued their investigations of the spill into the river. North Carolina regulators said Friday, March 21, 2014, that they have asked a judge to withdraw a proposed settlement that would have allowed Duke Energy to resolve environmental violations by paying a $99,000 fine with no requirement that the $50 billion company clean up its pollution.

    This March 20, 2014 photo made available by the North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources, shows a crack in an earthen dike holding back millions of gallons of coal ash and contaminated water at Duke Energy’s Cape Fear Plant in Moncure, N.C. On Friday, March 21, 2014, the state approved Duke’s emergency plan to repair the large crack. State environmental officials have issued a notice of violation against the company for illegally pumping 61 million gallons of contaminated water from a coal ash dump into the Cape Fear River. The new concerns come after a massive Feb. 2, 2014, coal ash spill at another Duke plant in Eden coated 70 miles of the Dan River in toxic gray sludge. (AP Photo/N.C.
