Download Data

Sibley Generating Station has 16 groundwater monitoring wells, 5 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between December 14, 2015 and October 04, 2017. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of boron, arsenic and molybdenum.

Site description

Kansas City Power & Light Company’s Sibley Generating Station is located in Jackson County, MO along the banks of the Missouri River. Sibley began operations in 1960 and operated three coal-fired units that generated a combined 524 MW up until 2017. In 2017, Sibley retired its first coal-fired unit and would later retire the other two units in December 2018. Sibley has not been converted to run natural gas and currently sits idly along the banks of the river. The three CCR disposal units: Fly Ash Impoundment, Sibley Slag Impoundment and CCR Landfill are regulated under the CCR rule. You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information on Sibley Generating Station, see EIP’s 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
