Snapshot

Mount Storm Power Station has 18 groundwater monitoring wells, 7 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between November 03, 2015 and October 12, 2017. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of cobalt, molybdenum, sulfate, lead and radium.

Site description

Dominion’s Mount Storm Power Station is a 1,629 MW coal-fired power generating station located near the Mt Storm Lake in Mount Storm, West Virginia. The plant started operating in 1965 and has three units regulated under the CCR rule: Phase A Landfill, Phase B Landfill and Low Volume Waste Settling Ponds (LVWSP). Phase A and B Landfills receive byproducts of the combustion of coal including fly ash, bottom ash and scrubber sludge generated from air pollution controls for the boilers. The LVWSP are used for the management of low-volume waste streams, including coal combustion residuals associated with Hydrobin overflows and area sumps, along with multiple water sources from plant drain systems. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on the Mount Storm Power Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report .
