Coal Combustion Residue: Status of EPA’s Efforts to Regulate Disposal
Frank Rusco (au)
On Dec. 22, ‘08, a breach in a surface impoundment (or storage pond) dike at the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant in TN resulted in the release of 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash -- also referred to as coal combustion residue (CCR) -- into the Emory River. The spill covered 300 acres and made 3 homes uninhabitable; it damaged 23 other homes, plus roads, rail lines, and utilities. The cleanup will cost a billion dollars and take 2 to 3 years to complete. This report identifies: (1) the number of surface impoundments for storing CCR in the U.S. and their location; (2) problems, if any, with the storage of coal ash, and how those problems are being addressed; and (3) the type of fed. oversight that exists for CCR and what, if any, issues need to be resolved.
