Demolition of the Pepco Benning Road Power Plant

Pepco Energy Services has announced that they have plans to completely demolish the power plant that sits just off of Benning Road NE near the Anacostia River.


Google satellite image of the Pepco Benning Road facility (property boundary highlighted in red) – the power plant structure occupies only 25% of the site which is bordered by the Anacostia River (West), a DC Solid Waste Station and the National Park Service Kenilworth Maintenance Yard (North), residential areas (East and South), and Benning Road (South).

The once coal then oil fired power plant was built in 1906 and closed in June of 2012. Pepco’s decision to demolish the plant is a bit of a surprise because the original announcement of the plant closure in 2007 only called for the decommissioning of the plant. The plan for demolition includes using explosives to implode the main structure holding the smoke stacks. All of the plans regarding the power plant are decisions made solely by Pepco and are separate from the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study as required under the 2011 Consent Decree.

Pepco is hosting an Open House to provide more information about their plans:
Saturday, November 16, 2013
10 am – 1 pm
Community Room of the District Department of Employment Services - 4058 Minnesota Ave., NE Washington, D.C.

It is almost surreal to think that those smoke stacks pictured above that have plagued the communities for about a century will no longer be seen as you come down around the bend on the Anacostia River, from homes of those who have lived in the area for decades, or from the streets and public open spaces nearby. What a great sight it will be.

We hope to see you at the Open House on November 16. If you cannot make it and have questions, feel free to email us and we will be sure to ask on your behalf. We will also post another blog with details from the meeting so stay tuned.

Everything published made a ton of sense. However, think on this, what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that grabbed a person's attention? I mean Demolition of the Pepco Benning Road Power Plant | anacostiaws.org is a little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and see how they write post titles to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.

re in England, you need to ensure that your personal injury lawyer is accredited. I might add that the attorney took the case on contingency and advanced, out of his own pocket, all of the expenses including court costs and investigation fees. Contact a New York personal injury attorney if you have been the victim of personal injury.

This should be an extensive process and should cover the interiors as well as the exterior bodywork. Pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles are heavily targeted because they are easy to crawl under.

We indirectly depend on power

  1. We indirectly depend on power plants to get our basic needed products like foods and shelters. Food is very essential for all individuals to survive. Without these no one can survive. The demand of organic food is increasing day to day with respect to population. Our farming sectors use several fertilizers to enhance the growth and productivity of plant, so they depend on fertilizer manufacturing power plants. All are depends on each other.
