Cleanup Of Toxic Coal Ash That Contaminated Colstrip Groundwater Begins

Talen Energy is shaving time and money from its estimate of how long it will take to cap the toxic ash pods at Colstrip Power Plant. The co-owner and operator of the southeast Montana coal-fired power plant now puts the ash pond capping price at $113.7 million and expects to complete the job by 2049, more than a decade earlier than previous estimates. The details are spelled out in Talen’s revised cleanup report.
