Site description

Public Service Company of Oklahoma, a subsidiary of American Electric Power (AEP), operates Northeastern Power Station, a former 1,815 MW coal and natural gas-fired power plant located along the Verdigris River near Oologah, Oklahoma. The plant was opened in 1971 and burned coal until 2012 when it was converted to natural gas. It was retired in 2016. The plant has disposed of coal ash in a 65-acre unlined ash landfill since 1978.

The station has two CCR Units: Bottom Ash Pond and Landfill. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on the Hugo Power Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
