Alliant Energy works to fill in ash ponds near I-380

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Alliant Energy is working to fill in the ash ponds from the old 6th Street power station in Cedar Rapids. 

The coal fueled station came down in 2014 after being damaged in the 2008 flood. 

The remaining ash ponds which are visible from I-380 downtown should be capped by October. 

Soon, the area will become green space.
