Site description

Luminant’s Miami Fort Power Station is located in Hamilton County, OH, along the banks of the Miami and Ohio Rivers in North Bend. This plant has been in operation since 1949, and, at its peak, had four coal-fired units that combine to generate 1,378-MW of electricity. Units 5 and 6 have since been retired, and Units 7 and 8 are scheduled for retirement by the end of 2027. Miami Fort Power Station operates their Ash Basin A and Ash Basin B on site, in between the tributary Miami River and Ohio River, and also operates an offsite landfill one-mile to the west of North Bend, OH. Ash Basins A & B and the Lawrenceburg Road Landfill are regulated under the CCR-rule. You can find the industry reported data here.
