CCR Rule Compliance Deadlines


 
The table below shows all of the CCR Rule requirements, listed chronologically by the compliance deadline for existing coal ash landfills and surface impoundments. For new landfills, new surface impoundments and lateral expansions, the CCR Rule also specifies requirement deadlines for compliance. Typically, this deadline is a set period of time related to the date of initial receipt of coal ash into the unit.
