Site description

Plum Point Energy Station is a 680-MW capacity coal-fired facility composed of one unit. It is largely owned by the Plum Point Services Company and operated by NAES in Osceola, Arkansas in Mississippi County. The station is located near the Mississippi River. Construction of Unit 1 was completed in 2010. There were plans for a 665 MW Unit 2, but this was cancelled in 2011 following public and legal opposition. The station has one landfill regulated under the federal coal ash rule. The landfill is 245 acres in size, and 500,000 tons of coal ash is deposited here each year. The Landfill is regulated under the CCR rule.
