Marshall Steam Station

Marshall Steam Station is a four-unit coal-fired generating facility and one of the largest coal facilities owned by Duke Energy in the Carolinas. Marshall generates enough electricity to power approximately 2 million homes. Since it began commercial operation in 1965, Marshall Steam Station has been among the most efficient power plants in the nation.

As part of a Comprehensive Site Assessment undertaken by HDR Engineering, Inc. of the Carolinas, Froehling & Robertson, Inc. provided all required monitoring well development services.

Our scientists and environmental technicians installed temporary pumps and through a combination of surging and pumping, developed the newly installed well until the discharge met the criteria established by Duke Energy, HDR, and the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.
