EPA Makes Additional Coal Combustion Waste Data Available

 

Contact:  Roxanne Smith, (202) 564-4355 / smith.roxanne@epa.gov

 

(Washington, DC – August 27, 2007) EPA is seeking public comment on additional information on the disposal of coal combustion waste. In May 2000, EPA issued a Regulatory Determination on Waste from the Combustion of Fossil Fuels. Since EPA issued the determination, additional information has become available for public comment through a Notice of Data Availability (NODA). This information includes:  (1) a joint EPA and Department of Energy study on the management of coal combustion waste in landfills and surface impoundments that have been permitted, built, or laterally expanded over approximately the last ten years, (2) an assessment of damage cases, and (3) a draft risk assessment on the management of coal combustion wastes in landfills and surface impoundments. 

 

EPA will consider all the information provided through the NODA, the comments and new information submitted on it, as well as the results of the peer review of the draft risk assessment as it continues the follow-up on its regulatory determination for coal combustion wastes disposed of in landfills and surface impoundments. The public will have 90 days to comment on the information once it is published in the Federal Register.
