The station has two coal fired generating units, which ceased operation in March 2019. The units are in the process of being decommissioned, and the work will take until the end of 2019. The dry fly ash and bottom ash is loaded on trucks and hauled to the nearby Dominion Energy owned CCR landfill.
The Yorktown CCR landfill is permitted by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and is equipped with a bottom liner and leachate collection/treatment systems.
Dominion Energy permanently closed over 60% of the landfill in 2017 in preparation for the coal-fired unit retirements. The remainder of the landfill will be permanently closed now that the coal units have been retired.
