Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR)

The final rule for the Coal Combustion Residuals was published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2015.  The new rule establishes technical requirements for CCR landfills and surface impoundments under subtitle E of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.  Big Rivers started in 2015 implementing the new requirements, and each year for the next several years additional requirements under the law will be implemented. Click here for more information.
