Dayton Power and Light Company’s Killen Power Plant was in Adams County, Ohio along the banks of the Ohio River in Manchester. DPLC began operations at Plant Killen in 1982 with a single, 618-MW coal-fired unit. On June 1, 2018, DPLC officially retired Plant Killen, moving their energy interests towards wind and solar projects. Plant Killen operates two onsite coal ash disposal units: Killen Station Bottom Ash Pond and Killen Station Fly Ash Pond. Both ponds storing CCR material are regulated under the CCR-rule.
