East Kentucky Power seeks permit to expand coal ash storage

East Kentucky Power Cooperative Inc. has applied for a permit to construct a coal combustion residual landfill for its Spurlock power plant in Maysville, Ky.

According to a notice posted June 6, East Kentucky Power is requesting authorization from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to discharge fill material into 5,755 linear feet of intermittent stream; 6,860 linear feet of ephemeral stream; and 0.05 acres of wetland. Currently, an area at the plant called Landfill Area C is "reaching capacity."

The Spurlock station, which produces 1.8 million cubic yards of coal combustion residuals annually, is seeking a permit to expand and operate the landfill through 2037.

Spurlock has been in operation since 1977 and serves 87 counties. It is the utility's largest coal-fired electric generating facility.

According to the permit, the East Kentucky Power anticipates a new phase of the landfill would be initiated every two to three years and five to seven phases would be required to complete the landfill, with each subsequent phase being approximately 10 to 15 acres in size.
