Kansas City Power & Light Company’s Montrose Generating Station is located in Henry County, MO on the banks of Montrose Lake. Montrose began operations in 1958 and operated three coal-fired units with a combined capacity of 564 MW. KCPL has officially retired all coal-fired units at the plant as of June 2018. The North and South Ash Impoundments as well as the CCR landfill at Montrose no longer receive CCR material but are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here.
