Site description

Dayton Power & Light Company’s JM Stuart Generating Station was in Brown County, Ohio along the banks of the Ohio River and manmade Little Three Mile Creek in Aberdeen. Stuart Station began operations in 1970 and at one time operated four coal-fired units that combined to generate 2,441-MW. The plant closed completely in June 2018 because of both an explosion that crippled unit one and economic pressures caused by the lower fuel alternative prices. Stuart Station no longer actively dumps CCR material into any of its landfills or coal ash ponds. At Stuart Station, Ponds 3A, 5, 6, 7/7A, 10 and Landfills 9 and 11 are regulated under the CCR-rule.
