EREF Webinar: Coal Ash Management: Regulatory Update and Geotechnical/Groundwater Considerations
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Coal still accounts for a third of electricity generation in the U.S., resulting in over 130 million short tons of coal combustion residuals (CCR) annually. This makes CCR the second largest waste stream in the U.S., behind municipal solid waste. Historically, the majority of CCR material has been stored in ash impoundments, essentially water and ash contained in an earthen dam. Recent state and federal regulations have essentially required the closure of all 735 coal ash impoundments nationwide

Coal still accounts for a third of electricity generation in the U.S., resulting in over 130 million short tons of coal combustion residuals (CCR) annually. This makes CCR the second largest waste stream in the U.S., behind municipal solid waste. Historically, the majority of CCR material has been stored in ash impoundments, essentially water and ash contained in an earthen dam. Recent state and federal regulations have essentially required the closure of all 735 coal ash impoundments nationwide. This presentation highlights groundwater and geotechnical considerations in light of the required closure of these impoundments.
