Site description

Choctaw Generating LLLP’s Red Hills Operation Generating Facility is in Ackerman, Mississippi just north of the Tombigbee National Forest in Choctaw County. Plant Red Hills began operations in 2001 with their singular coal-fired unit with a generating capacity of 514-MW. Red Hills also operates an active, onsite Ash Management Unit that spans 90 acres in total. Choctaw Generating LLLP plans to close or retire the coal-fired unit. Red Hills Ash Management Unit is regulated under the CCR rule.
