W.S Lee Steam Electric Plant has 29 groundwater monitoring wells, 24 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between July 18, 2016 and September 08, 2017. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of cobalt, radium, lithium, arsenic, molybdenum and antimony.

Site description

Duke Energy Company’s W.S. Electric Steam Generating Plant is located in in Grenville County, SC, along the Banks of the Saluda River. Plant Lee began operations in 1951 as a coal-fired plant. Over its lifespan, Plant Lee saw three coal-fired units that have now either been retired or converted to a combined cycle gas generator. This plant operated an onsite primary and secondary ash basin that are still regulated under the CCR-rule. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on W.S. Lee Electric Steam Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
