LANSING, Iowa (KCRG) - Alliant Energy imploded the stack and baghouse of their decommissioned Lansing Generating Station on Wednesday.

The former coal-fired power plant, which began its operations in 1948, ceased them in 2022. The implosion is part of the decommissioning process.

Officials say the remaining structure is expected to also be imploded later this fall.
