CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The explosive demolition of Santee Cooper's Grainger Generating Station stacks took place at 8 a.m. Sunday morning.
The stacks were be the final bit of demolition on the old coal plant site... after nearly a year of tearing things down.
For the big detonation, crews punched more than 330 holes in the bottom of the stacks, filling them with nearly 120 pounds of dynamite. Each went off in a specific order, so the building fell in a specific place. The actual explosion lasted for just seconds.
