Lansing Smith Generating Plant has 18 groundwater monitoring wells, 12 of which have been polluted above federal advisory levels based on samples collected between March 28, 2012 and November 19, 2019. Groundwater at this site contains unsafe levels of boron, sulfate, radium, arsenic, lithium, manganese and molybdenum.

Site description

Gulf Power's Lansing Smith Generating Plant is located near Southport, Florida, along the North Bay. The plant operated two coal-fired units with 340-MW net capacity of electricity since the mid-1960s and added a natural gas unit in 2002. In March 2016, Gulf Power retired both its coal units.

Lansing Power Plant is among the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's list of potential damage cases, indicating that it has potentially polluted groundwater or surface water at levels which threaten human health and the environment. You can find the industry-reported data here.
