Site description

Dominion Generation's Chesterfield Power Station is located on the James River near the Dutch Gap Conservation Area in Chester, Virginia. The plant was commissioned in 1944 and has the total capacity of 1,354 MW. Dominion also operates a metal cleaning waste treatment pond on-site. There are three disposal areas regulated under the CCR rule: Fossil Fuel Combustion Products Management Facility (landfill), Upper Ash Pond, and Lower Ash Pond. The 97-acre solid waste management unit (property encompasses 190 acres) was developed and permitted in 2016, as a captive industrial landfill (66-acre disposal area) for the disposal of coal combustion residues. Closure of the Upper Ash Pond began in 2002. The Lower Ash Pond stopped accepting newly generated coal combustion residues in November 2017. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on the Chesterfield Power Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report .
