Site description

Minnesota Power’s Syl Laskin Energy Center is a 116-MW natural gas-fired power station in Aurora, Minnesota in St. Louis County along the banks of Colby Lake. Laskin began operations in 1953 and operated two coal-fired units. Both units were converted to natural gas in 2015. Following the conversion, CCR was no longer generated and disposed of at the facility. It has one inactive surface impoundment that completed its closure in 2018.

You can find the industry-reported data here. For more information about the Syl Laskin Energy Center, see EIP's 2019 National Coal Ash Report.
