Project Description

This former coal-fired electric power generating station located near Beverly, Ohio was acquired by KEY's client for the purpose of redevelopment. Plans for this 1,500 acre site included industrial, recreational, and a wildlife habitat and preserve. Major elements of the project include the closure of over 200 acres of coal ash impoundments, beneficial re-use of bottom ash, and ongoing groundwater monitoring program.

Activities Performed

KEY initiated redevelopment efforts by preparing a scope of work for all environmental activities site-wide. These activities included the development and implementation of a closure plan to address all 1,500 acres of the site, a groundwater monitoring program plan and preparation of PTI submissions for the upper and lower reservoirs. KEY also developed and participated in the patenting of an innovative approach to closing the upper reservoir utilizing a sustainable habitat that was approved by Ohio EPA. KEY's activities include:

  • Patented Design Alternative utilizing Sustainable Habitat Cover System for upper fly ash reservoir 

  • Upper and lower fly ash reservoir closure designs and permitting

  • Oversight and certification of traditional cap for 40 acre middle reservoir

  • Dam permit compliance

  • Inspection and preparation of annual dam inspection reports

  • Closure coordination with demolition activities

  • NPDES and groundwater monitoring and reporting
