The Acme Power Plant Reclamation Project is a community effort to address environmental and safety concerns at the former Acme Power Plant.    The site is a 5 acre island of debris within an otherwise open space along the Tongue River, north of Sheridan.  The Tongue River Watershed is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and the Acme site, in particular, is an important piece of the area’s mining history.
