Site description

Duck Creek Power Station is a 441 MW facility in Canton, Illinois. Duck Creek was owned by Ameren until it was bought by Dynegy in 2013. According to the EPA's Toxic Release Inventory, Duck Creek reported the on-site release of 504,001 pounds of waste in 2010. Duck Creek is listed among the U.S. EPA's proven damage cases, indicating that it has polluted groundwater or surface water at levels which threaten human health and the environment. Ameren spent $1 billion installing scrubbers at Duck Creek Station and one other plant to reduce nitrogen oxide. Duck Creek has two ash ponds.
