Site description

Edwards Power Station is a coal-fired facility with a capacity of about 600-MW, previously owned and operated by Ameren until it was bought by Dynegy in 2013. Edwards is located near Bartonville, Illinois in Peoria County along the Illinois River. The facility was first built in 1960 and composed of three units, until Unit 1 was retired in 2015. In 2018 Dynegy merged with Vistra Energy, who announced the facility’s two remaining units will be closed by the end of 2022. Edwards reported the release of 730,087 pounds of waste on-site to the EPA's Toxic Release Inventory. Coal ash is disposed of in an 89-acre, 32-foot-high pond regulated under the CCR rule.
