As we continue work to safely close our ash basins, we have a number of projects underway at the Roxboro Plant. We recently mailed a postcard to update plant neighbors who live close to the plant.

January – July 2018

Contractors will use land near the corner of Semora and Concord-Ceffo roads from mid-January through July as a temporary lay-down and pipe fabrication area. This is part of the company’s work to prepare the Roxboro ash basins for closure.
