Site description

Power South Energy Corporation’s Charles Lowman Power Plant opened in 1969 and was located along the banks of the Tombigbee River in Jackson, AL. The Lowman plant operated three coal-fired units that generated 556-MW total capacity. The facility’s units were all retired in 2020. Coal ash waste from the plant is stored in an FGD disposal pond and Ash Ponds Unit 1 and Unit 2/3, which are regulated under the CCR rule.
