MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Coal ash waste from a FirstEnergy Corp. plant in Pennsylvania will be transported to the Murray Energy Corp. reclamation site near Moundsville in West Virginia.

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/2g4oIP1 ) reports coal ash from First Energy’s Bruce Mansfield Plant in Shippingport, Pennsylvania, will be transported on four or five Ohio River barges per day.

FirstEnergy spokeswoman Stephanie Walton said Friday the company plans to send 80 percent of the coal combustion residuals produced at the Bruce Mansfield plant to the Moundsville site for reclamation.

Neither Murray nor FirstEnergy would confirm the reclamation site’s exact location.

About 80 percent of the Bruce Mansfield Plant’s coal ash will be used for mine reclamation, while the remainder will continue to be recycled into drywall by National Gypsum at its production facility in Shippingport.
