GRAND RAPIDS — Consumers Energy’s J.H. Campbell Generating Complex in West Olive is scheduled to close in 2040; however, members of a nationwide environmental group would like to see the plant closed sooner than that.

On Tuesday, West Olive residents, local Sierra Club members and more met in Grand Rapids – in front of a sign reading “Coal and drinking water don’t mix: It’s time to clean up coal ash in West Michigan” – to discuss the environmental club’s results of groundwater testing near the Campbell plant.
