Managing Coal Combustion Waste (CCW): Issues with Disposal and Waste
by Linda Luther (Paperback, 26 pages, $20)

In 2008, coal-fired power plants accounted for almost half of the U.S.’ electric power, resulting in as much as 136 millions tons of coal combustion waste (CCW). CCW generally contains a range of heavy metals such as arsenic, beryllium, chromium, lead, and mercury.

While there is the potential for a sudden catastrophic release of waste, the primary concern regarding the management of CCW usually relates to the potential for hazardous constituents to leach into surface or groundwater, and hence contaminate drinking water, surface water, or living organisms.

Contents of this report: (I) Overview of Disposal and Use Issues; (II) The Nature of Coal Combustion Waste; (III) Potential Risks Associated with CCW Management; (IV) Regulatory History and Current Rulemaking: Waste Management Requirements Potentially Related to CCW; CCW’s Regulatory Exemption Under “the Bevill Amendment”; EPA Actions from the Bevill Amendment to Kingston.
