The diesel generating plant in Pella is set to get some important upgrades. The improvements will raise the stack height at the plant from 50 to 65 feet to address concerns from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources centering around national ambient air quality standard.
This will also ensure the the plant can maintain its operating hours with the DNR. A public hearing date for bids on the project has been set for September 6th. The engineers estimated cost for the project is $872,000.
