Loud noises in Oregon and Toledo attributed to new Oregon power plant

OREGON, OH (WTOL) - According to the City of Oregon, loud noises are being generated by the new Oregon Clean Energy Center on N. Lallendorf Rd.

The power plant is undergoing construction and is performing "steam blows" which are used to clean the piping and other equipment prior to long-term operation.

According to the city, the steam blows will occur for several hours at a time over a period of two weeks.

The city says the noises are not a part of normal plant operations and will come to an end after testing is completed.

The power plant is expected to begin operation in early June.
