NiSource reports earnings from 2013

MERRILLVILLE, Ind.

NiSource Inc. announced net operating earnings from continuing income of $493.9 million for the full year 2013, compared with $425.8 million the previous year.

Fourth-quarter income was $151.8 million, compared with $134 million during the same period in 2012, the company announced Tuesday.

Earnings across all three of NiSource’s major segments increased for the year as well.

The company attributed a $59.4 million bump in the net revenue of its Columbia Pipeline Group to system modernization, increased demand and commodity margin and higher royalties from mineral rights.

Gas-distribution revenues jumped by $77.1 million, which the company attributed to increases in regulatory and service programs, higher commercial and industrial usage.

Toxins leaking from 2nd pipe at dump

RALEIGH, N.C.

North Carolina officials say wastewater containing unsafe levels of arsenic from a Duke Energy coal-ash dump is flowing into the Dan River, which already is contaminated from a massive Feb. 2 spill.

The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources ordered Duke on Tuesday to stop the wastewater coming from a pipe running under a coal-ash dump at its Eden power plant.

A nearby pipe at the dump collapsed without warning two weeks ago, coating the river bottom with toxic ash as far as 70 miles downstream.

State regulators expressed concern the second pipe could fail, triggering another spill.

Water coming from the pipe contains arsenic at levels 14 times that considered safe for human contact.

Duke had downplayed concerns that water flowing from the pipe was contaminated.
