-Charah Solutions, a leading provider of environmental and maintenance services to the power generation industry, today announced that it recently was awarded a Closure by Removal (CBR) impoundment project by a Southeastern utility.
Charah Solutions will be responsible for the closure of approximately 100 acres of ash ponds located at a former coal-fired power station that was retired in 2015. The scope of work includes the installation of environmental controls, installation of new rail as well as improvements to existing rail infrastructure, and the construction of a large concrete loadout area.
Over the next several years as the closure of the ponds is under way, over 2 million tons of ash is expected to be beneficially used in the concrete industry. At the project’s conclusion, the former ash ponds will be restored as useable 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,” said Scott Reschly, Charah Solutions Vice President of Quality & Technical Services. “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.”
Scott Sewell, Charah Solutions President and CEO, added, “Charah Solutions is nationally recognized in the power generation industry as a total solutions company, providing unparalleled service and innovation to meet the changing needs of our utility partners. We are pleased to execute this major Closure by Removal project and beneficially use the ash to meet the demand of the cement industry.”
