Public Meeting
Friday, March 30, 2018 -
10:00am to 11:00am
ADEQ Phoenix Office Room 3175

Phoenix, AZ 85007

ADEQ’s Water Quality Division will hold a stakeholder meeting to discuss the state’s intention to obtain primacy for a portion of the Coal Combustion Residual (CCR) program.

The CCR program is a federal solid waste program that protects human health and the environment from water and air releases of coal combustion residuals, which are generated by electric utilities that burn coal. CCRs may be wet or dry and disposed into landfills and surface impoundments.

For more information on the federal CCR rule, please see the EPA website | View >

ADEQ intends to revise the Aquifer Protection Permit (APP) rules by adding a new subpart that only applies to CCR facilities. The subpart will include the portions of the federal CCR requirements related to water quality standards, monitoring, recordkeeping, corrective action, closure and post-closure. ADEQ also intends to adopt a rule to address air releases of CCRs from landfills.

Meeting Objectives:

Provide an overview of the Coal Combustion Residual program and its applicability to Arizona
Discuss ADEQ’s intentions in pursuing assumption of the program, which is currently a self-implementing rule
Identify what you, as ADEQ customers and stakeholders, value most in terms of a state administered CCR program and delivery of CCR-related products and services
