Coal Ash Management


With an in-depth understanding of coal ash regulations, and their implications for the electric power industry, TRC supports our clients with all phases of CCR compliance from engineering and operations to construction, pond closure, reuse and redevelopment.


TRC helps utilities, independent power producers and COOPs move away from traditional coal ash management; address short and long term CCR liabilities, both operational and environmental; and tackle post-CCR unit reuse/redevelopment so they can continue to deliver reliable power generation.

TRC provides turnkey engineering and construction services to assist our power generation customers under both the shorter and longer-term time frames provided by the regulations. We are experts in evaluating the CCR rule, identifying technical solutions and business implications for compliance options, and designing engineering solutions to address site-specific issues. Additionally, our integrated engineering and construction services provide added value throughout the project cycle, with the ability to execute the necessary permitting, engineering, and design with realistic constructability input and evaluation, and the ability to turn-key landfill and CCR pond closures or new construction, which can bring significant benefit in both schedule reduction to help meet regulatory windows, and cost savings through value engineering throughout the project execution.
