Site description

Gallagher Generating Station, located along the Ohio River in New Albany, Indiana, was a 280-MW coal-fired generating plant operated by Duke Energy. The station had four generating units, first beginning operation in 1958. The station retired two of the four units in 2012, and the remaining two in 2021. The station operated four CCR units: Ash Pond A, Gallagher Landfill, Primary Pond, and Secondary Settling Pond.
