Mid-Mo Power Plant to Close

Blame the EPA. The power plant at Chamois will close in September, due to the cost of complying with increasingly tough regulations from the feds.

Central Electric Power Co-Op announced the plan to close the operation. The co-op says coming into line with EPA guidelines would cost as much as $14 million. 28 staffers will lose their jobs when the plant closes. Central Co-Op says it will help those workers with job placement services.
