EPA's Coal Combustion Residuals Management Rules

 

Learn how federal enforcement actions are further shaping the landscape for those responsible for managing coal combustion residuals.

Since the catastrophic failure of a Tennessee coal ash impoundment in late 2008, EPA has stepped into the field by establishing a more comprehensive set of regulations for the operation, closure and post-closure care of coal combustion residuals (CCRs), including historic impoundments and landfills. In 2018, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals vacated portions of those rules, sustaining a challenge by environmental groups and forcing EPA to develop new requirements to more closely regulate these types of facilities. EPA has had to re-craft certain of those rules, with an emphasis on unlined and even some lined impoundments, imposing new requirements and costs on hundreds of such facilities across the country. Learn how these latest changes following the D.C. Circuit's decision will affect the management of CCRs and how recent federal enforcement actions are further shaping the landscape for those responsible for managing CCRs.
