The three smoke stacks at the defunct Hatfield Ferry’s Power Plant will be demolished the morning of Saturday, Oct. 1. FirstEnergy also plans to demolish the hyperbolic cooling towers, left, in early 2023. The boiler house, which can be seen behind the twin smoke stacks, is set to be demolished next spring.

FirstEnergy will have the first of three planned demolitions at now-defunct Hatfield Ferry’s Power Plant next week, with plans to open up the hundreds of acres upon which the power plant stood for economic development.

The company decommissioned the Monongahela Township plant in October 2013. FirstEnergy spokesman Todd Meyers said work to tear the plant down began in February. At about 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, they will implode three smoke stacks still standing on the property.
