Standards for the Management of Coal Combustion Residues Generated by Commercial Electric Power Producers – Proposed Rule – Expected in the near future

"U.S. EPA is assessing the development of regulations for coal combustion residue(CCR). The regulations will apply to landfill and surface impoundments that manage coal combustion wastes from commercial electric power companies. It is likely that U.S. EPA will take comment on several regulatory approaches: 1) regulate CCR as hazardous waste;2) regulate CCR as non-hazardous waste and 3) regulate wet CCR as hazardous waste and

dry CCR as non-hazardous waste."
