Feds OK energy plant on Ohio River

Hamilton Journal-News

HAMILTON — City officials can move forward with plans to build a hydroelectric plant on the Ohio River after getting license approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The commissioners approved the license Wednesday, June 25, for the city to construct and operate a $350 million hydroelectric project at the Meldahl Locks and Dam, which is east of Cincinnati along the river.

The move prevents the project from being moved out of Ohio and will create jobs in the region, according to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown's office.
