Cost-Cutting Action Plan for Historic Coal-Fired Power Plant
EAG developed a cost-cutting and efficient plan of action, approved by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), which will bring this former coal-fired power plant site to regulatory closure before initial timeline goals.
This plant was held in deep regard by the local community, once a robust source of jobs. Formerly known as the “Mighty Marysville”, this historic facility operated from 1922 until 2001, employing 250 at its peak. DTE Energy sought a strategic option that would not only transfer the liability from its corporate balance sheet, but also reposition the site for its highest and best use to benefit the community.
Remedial Activity Includes: Asbestos abatement, Groundwater capture & treatment, In-situ soil treatments, vapor intrusion studies, oversight of demolition, environmental site and risk assessments.
Catalyst for Re-development: Following demolition and remediation, a mixed-use development is planned for the waterfront property. The proposed plan would redevelop the former power plant into a unique riverfront destination.
