Coal Combustion Residuals
Understanding the Final Rule and Next Steps for Electric Utilities
In April 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published its final coal combustion residuals (CCR) rule. The rule regulates the disposal of CCR from active electric generating units as nonhazardous waste by establishing minimal national criteria for landfills and surface impoundments. This rule becomes effective as owners and operators have historically lacked rigorous management of CCR sites. This white paper outlines a programmatic approach to build an effective compliance strategy and organizational capabilities to ensure proper and effective management of CCR sites.
