Glover Construction was hired to develop a 36.8-acre lined cell for the sole purpose of ash storage.

The project required clearing, erosion control, mass excavation of ash and soil, installation of a leachate collection system, and placing concrete to establish permanent ditches.


Approximately 250,000 cubic yards of ash was removed from the primary ash pond, transported through the operating plant, and staged for placement in the newly constructed cell.

Relocation of the ash required moving numerous trucks through and during plant operations.


  • Relocation was accomplished without incident or accident.
  • A new haul road was constructed of placed concrete, creating 1.5 miles of new road surface. 
  • 740,000-cubic-yards of earthwork.
  • 118,000-cubic-yards of protective cover.

Contract Value: $13.44 million
