A Southeastern utility has tapped Charah Solutions for a Closure by Removal impoundment project encompassing upward of 100 acres of ash deposits at a coal-fired power station that was retired in 2015. Work will include installation of environmental controls plus rail infrastructure improvements and extension, along with loadout area construction. Over a multi-year contract, Charah anticipates processing of 2 million-plus tons of impounded material for beneficial use as concrete-grade fly ash, while preparing the former pond acreage to be restored as usable property.
“Charah Solutions has decades of proven experience and expertise to provide complex solutions for large ash pond closure projects and perform them safely, all while being a good neighbor to the local community and a responsible environmental steward,” says Vice President of Quality & Technical Services Scott Reschly. “We take pride in our ability to customize each coal ash impoundment project to suit the specific needs of the utility and ensure compliance with all EPA mandated regulations and deadlines.”
