Are they shutting down the power plant facility temporarily or permanent?

Permanent from my understanding.

Too bad all the fish are gonna die. They’re never adapt to the new Water temperatures and get bigger. It’s game over for ole Monti.

Yes, Martin Creek is still alive and well for now. Perky belongs to SWEPCO and it's doing well also.

If they are coal fired plants their days are numbered. Seems like I heard they were going to convert a couple but Monti and Fairfield go away in Jan and Feb, Welsh will also go offline in the next couple of years.

It's anyone's guess what effect this will have on the fish, bait fish, spawn, vegetation, anglers, etc. but Buda13 is correct, these coal powered plants days are numbered. It's also anyone's guess what effect the closings will have on the customers who depend on them for electricity. Not many winners in this deal. The "end of an era" definitely describes the event. The closing of Monti brings back memories of the Jerry Dean guide days. I'm sure everyone on here has their own memories, mine is getting my one and only citation from a game warden for a throw cushion. Oh well.
