Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Part B Implementation

The CCR Part B Final Rule, published November 12, 2020, to allow a limited number of facilities to demonstrate to EPA or a Participating State Director that, based on groundwater data and the design of a particular surface impoundment, the unit has and will continue to ensure there is no reasonable probability of adverse effects to human health and the environment. Therefore, these CCR surface impoundments should be allowed to continue to operate. The regulations state that facilities have until November 30, 2020 to submit applications to EPA for approval, but since the effective date for the final rule is December 14, 2020, EPA accepted revisions or applications until December 14, 2020. EPA is updating this web page with the current status of the demonstrations received in the table below.
