Coal project coming to Homer area

Homer— At a regular meeting Monday night, Mayor David Lucas said new industry would bring in a new stream of revenue for the village.

Sunrise Coal of Terra Haute, IN, plans to begin construction in 2014 on a coal preparation plant and railway loading station on its 400-acre site, located about four miles south and two miles east of the village limits.

The village plans to supply the company with the required 750,000 gallons of water per day for its operations, at a flow rate of 250 gallons per minute.


Lucas said the company has already procured mineral rights leases from many farmers in the area, and has invested a total of about $150 million into the local project to date. He said the company would employ upwards of 200 workers for the mines, a portion of whom would be transfers from the company’s Carlisle, IN mines.


To provide water service to the mining company, the village would dig out a holding reservoir nearby its sewage plant and would install an intake pipe into the Salt Fork River to collect untreated water, said Water supervisor Rob Boyer. Sunrise Coal would then be responsible for pumping the water from the reservoir to its mining operations. Boyer said until the reservoir is in place, the village could meet the water needs of the mining company with clean runoff from the sewage plant combined with the village’s surplus well water.


Lucas said to offset the cost of the reservoir project, the village would apply for grant money specially earmarked for small municipalities looking to develop utilities to support industry.
