Download Data

Bremo Power Station has 32 groundwater monitoring wells, 28 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between March 11, 2013 and October 10, 2019. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of manganese, molybdenum, cobalt, lithium, arsenic, sulfate, boron, lead and radium.

Site description

Dominion Virginia Power's Bremo Power Station is located in Fluvanna County, VA, just north of the James River. The plant was first in service in 1931, but in 2014, the 254-MW plant was converted to natural gas and fully shut down in 2019. There are three disposal areas regulated under the CCR rule: the West Ash Pond, the East Ash Pond, and the North Ash Pond. The West and East Ash Ponds are inactive surface impoundments, and CCR material from these ponds have been moved to the North Ash Pond. State legislation passed in 2019 requires Dominion Energy to remove coal ash from North Ash Pond, for which Dominion is in the process of constructing a new landfill.

You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on the Boardman Power Plant, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
