The Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Rule requires owners of CCR disposal units to continually produce a wide variety of written action and control plans, initial and annual assessment reports and other CCR management documents throughout the operational and post-closure life of each CCR unit. Documentation regarding the design, operation and closure of CCR units, as well as groundwater monitoring, corrective action and post-closure care must be completed by specific deadlines and publicly-posted on a dedicated CCR website.
Some of the most critically important changes established by the CCR Rule are the requirements for groundwater monitoring. For existing CCR landfills and surface impoundments, eight (8) sampling events with analysis must be completed under specific guidelines by October 17, 2017. Once the sampling an analysis plan is established, owners must submit an Annual Groundwater Monitoring and Corrective Action Report; the first of which is due by January 31, 2018.
