Talen Energy has put a $138 million price tag on capping Colstrip Power Plant’s toxic coal ash ponds.
The co-owner and operator of the southeast Montana coal-fired power plant submitted the required estimates earlier this month to the state’s Department of Environmental Quality. Capping the ash ponds is only one portion of a three-stage cleanup plan, and likely the cheapest of the three.
