Snapshot

Cross Generating Station has 15 groundwater monitoring wells, 9 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between January 25, 2015 and October 12, 2017. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of cobalt, boron, sulfate, beryllium, lithium, radium, arsenic and fluoride.

Site description

Santee Cooper Company’s Cross Generating Station is located in Berkeley County, SC along the Diversion Canal that connects coastal lakes Moultrie and Marion. This station began operations in 1984 and now operates four coal-fired units capable of producing 2,390 MW. Cross Generating Station is the largest remaining coal-fired power plant in the state of South Carolina. The future of this plant is uncertain as Santee Cooper is looking to sell the plant to both bidders with plans to shutter the coal plant and bidders with plans to keep it in operation. Cross Generating Station operates two Ash Ponds and two Landfills that are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on Cross Generating Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
