Permit Granted
(2008-02-07)
(WOUB) - The Ohio EPA has issued a final air permit for the American Municipal Power Plant in Meigs County.

The permit affects a proposed coal-fired AMP-Ohio facility to be built in Letart Falls.

The project has a two-and-a-half-billion dollar price tag and would generate 1000 megawatts.

A public hearing was held in the fall about the permit.

Environmentalists lobbied against granting the permit - saying that alternative energy sources needed to be explored.
