Providing a suitable solution for CCR basin closures
In an effort to meet government regulations, power plants that use coal to produce electricity are required to provide a suitable solution for CCR basin closures. We’ve helped customers that are struggling with their CCR basin closure projects and have found solutions when other companies couldn’t. Contact us today to see how you can benefit from our knowledge, experience, and design of CCR basin closures.
How is a CCR Basin Closed?
There are two main solutions to closing CCR basins. The first involves managing CCR in place, while the second involves excavating and moving it to another location. The EPA recognizes that both solutions are viable and provide environmental benefits.
For any closure activity, the EPA requires companies to create a written closure plan. At Trans Ash, we provide the documentation for our customers, which includes:
- Descriptions of how the CCR basin will be closed in accordance with EPA standards
- Estimates of the maximum amount of CCR onsite during the active life of the basin
- Descriptions of the cover system
- A schedule for completing basin closure services
At Trans Ash, we’ve cleaned over 100 ash basins since founding our company in 1960. We are committed to providing full service to our customers with affordable solutions to their difficult basin closure projects.
