H.B. Robinson Steam Generating Plant has 15 groundwater monitoring wells, 11 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between June 07, 2016 and September 25, 2017. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of lithium, arsenic, radium and molybdenum.

Site description

Duke Energy’s H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant is located in Darlington County along the banks of Lake Robinson. Plant Robinson began operations in 1960 with a singular, 260 MW coal-fired unit. This coal fired unit has been fully retired by Duke Energy as of 2012. Plant Robinson is now a nuclear-powered steam plant that continues to monitor its singular Ash Basin, which is 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.
