In-Depth Coal Ash Impoundment Closure
September 19-20, 2016 | Atlanta, GA
With the impact and enforcement of the Federal Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Rule, owners and operators of coal ash impoundments have been engaged in and are facing the closure of their impoundments. This course shares the expertise of industry leaders from multiple closure service providers. The purpose of the course is to give individuals involved with closure projects either directly or indirectly, a more comprehensive understanding of the process and steps involved in closure of these impoundments. The program will dive into detail on a variety of those steps such as: geotechnical work, dewatering, stability issues, civil design, cover design, groundwater monitoring and corrective action, project scheduling, construction approaches and contractor selection, and finally post closure land use.
