MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - State regulators have granted an air quality permit for a proposed natural gas-fired power plant in Moundsville.

A Department of Environmental Protection legal notice says the plant is authorized to annually emit certain levels of pollutants, including about 145 tons of nitrogen oxide and about 209 tons of carbon monoxide.

The $615 million plant would generate 549 megawatts. It would be located on a 37-and-a-half-acre site along the Ohio River.

Moundsville Power managing partner Andrew Dorn tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News Register (https://bit.ly/1vzBcLi ) that the group is waiting for a site certificate from the West Virginia Public Service Commission.

Dorn says the group plans to begin construction in the fall of 2015. He says it will create 400 construction jobs and 30 full-time jobs.
