"Ohio Coal-Fired Power Plant Shuttered in $16 Million Settlement"

"COLUMBUS, Ohio -- American Municipal Power, an Ohio nonprofit utility, will permanently retire its Richard H. Gorsuch Station coal-fired power plant near Marietta, Ohio under a settlement to resolve violations of the Clean Air Act.

The agreement with the federal government resolves violations of the Clean Air Act's new source review requirements at the utility's Gorsuch Station, which has a sulfur dioxide emission rate in the highest three percent of coal-fired utility sources in the country, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency."
