AGC’s Experts to Present at USWAG CCR Workshop in March

USWAG Workshop Addressing CCR Regulations

On March 21, 2019 Veronica Foster and Chris Reitman will give a presentation, “An Historical Perspective of State Adopting of CCR Rules,” to the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) Utility Solid Waste Activities Group (USWAG) at the Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Workshop held in Arlington, VA on March 20-21, 2019.  The presentation will cover the historical regulation of CCR wastes by states throughout the continental United States and actions they can  take be delegated the authority from the EPA to regulate CCR units in their states now.

Veronica Foster has worked with CCRs since 2000, leveraging previous experience with incinerated and screened Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).  Both materials have similar engineering properties and design considerations for dry ash handling and disposal.  MS. Foster was the design engineer for a Mid-Atlantic CCR Landfill project which was awarded the 2010 Construction Excellence Award for new Cell construction by the states’ contractor’s association and office of budget.  The recognized Landfill, permitted in 2008, met the state’s requirements for dry ash management and disposal prior to the draft CCR Rules first published in 2010.  This site also satisfied the CCR Rules without any modification.  Ms Foster continues to support clients manage their CCR liabilities.

Chris Reitman has worked on many significant CCR projects, including several closure projects in Pennsylvania utilizing both beneficial reuse options and in-place closure.  Mr. Reitman has also reviewed the management of over 50 ash basins in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest areas for compliance-related issues.
