Crystal River Energy Complex has 32 groundwater monitoring wells, 29 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between January 18, 2016 and November 25, 2019. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of radium, arsenic, molybdenum, sulfate, lithium, boron, selenium, cobalt, beryllium and lead.

Site description

Duke Energy Corporation’s Crystal River Energy Complex is in Citrus County, Florida along the coastline of Crystal Bay. The Crystal River Plant opened in 1966, operating four coal-fired units capable of producing 2,477 MW. The Crystal River Plant retired Unit 1 and 2 units in December 2018. In the same year, Duke Energy Inc. completed the construction of two combined-cycle natural gas units that replaced the coal-fired units at a cost of $1.5 billion. The Crystal River Plant Ash Storage/Disposal Landfill, Primary FGD Blowdown Treatment Pond and Backup FGD Blowdown Pond are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here.
