Site description

Omaha Public Power District’s Nebraska City Station is located in Douglas County, NE. This generating station began operations in 1979 along the Missouri River, operating two coal-fired units that combine to generating 1212 MW. Nebraska City Station also operates two Ash Landfill units that are adjacent to the Missouri River. Ash Landfill 1 and Ash Landfill 2 are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry reported data on OPPD’s website here. For more information on the adverse effects of coal-ash groundwater pollution nationwide, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
