Done Deal: Luminant-City Deal For Thermo Mine Final

The deal between the City of Sulphur Springs and Luminant to transfer the title for the former Thermo mine property to the city was closed at lunch Friday, according to City Manger Marc Maxwell.

“Luminant didn’t have to do this. It’s a good investment for our community, for which I say, thank you, Luminant,” Maxwell said.

City officials will soon start doing some planning for the property, to determine how the 4,858-acre facilty will be used. The next step will be to begin the process of annexing the property into the city limits. That process is expected to begin at the Dec. 3 meeting of Sulphur Springs City Council.

The city, as part of the deal, will grant easement access so that reclamation efforts can continue. Some areas have already been reclaimed, others are in progress. A reclamation plan has yet to be approved by the Railroad Commission for a section of about 500 acres labled H Area.Once approved, easements will have been granted so the work can begin on that section as well.
