Pleasant Prairie Power Plant was a 1,233 MW coal-fired station, located near Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. It had two coal-fired units which began operating in the 1980s. As the plant owner, Wisconsin Energy, moves to cheaper natural gas and energy sources, it decided to close the plant permanently in 2018. One ash landfill located north of the station is regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here.
