Utility to Recycle all Coal Ash at SC Plants

Santee Cooper announced November 19 that it will recycle all coal ash at three South Carolina facilities. The ash storage ponds at the Grainger, Jefferies, and Winyah stations will be emptied over the next 10 to 15 years. The Winyah facility is still in operation although the coal-fired units at Grainger and Jefferies have been retired. The Grainger plant is at the center of two environmental lawsuits, but a Southern Environmental Law Center attorney said the announcement settles the cases.
