In Place Closure

The Environmental Protection Agency’s rule to regulate the disposal of coal combustion residuals as solid waste went into effect last fall. After evaluating the available solutions and technologies, several experts, including TRC's Kent Nilsson shared with POWER what they consider the safest and most effective approaches for complying with the rule and protecting the environment.

Kent discusses several topics including beneficial reuse, construction considerations and best practices that apply across facility types. Kent says effective CCR managers: 

  • Understand that CCR materials have some unique physical properties that can have significant effects on constructability and on project schedules. 
  • Secure critical resources well in advance of the proposed construction activities. 
  • Recognize the tremendous value offered by pilot studies or field trials of proposed construction methods.
