World of Coal Ash 2019

May 13, 2019

The World of Coal Ash (WOCA) conference is an international conference organized by the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) and the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER). The 2019 conference will be held May 13-16, 2019, in St. Louis Missouri.  This 8th joint biennial meeting will focus on the science, applications and sustainability of worldwide coal combustion products (CCPs) as well as gasification products.

SCS Engineers is a Platinum sponsor of this year’s conference, and numerous SCS professionals plan to present or attend, including our Senior Vice President of Environmental Services, Mike McLaughlin.  Our presenters will be:

  • Monte Markley, PG – “Midwest CCR Leachate Disposal Options Evaluation and Disposal Case Study”
  • Eric Nelson – “Finding Balance: How Future Use Guides Ash Pond Closure Strategies”
  • Nicole Kron and Eric Nelson – “State vs Federal CCR Rule Regulations: Comparisons and Impacts”
  • Phil Gearing (with Lindsay Motl of Alliant Energy) – “How to Minimize CCR Landfill Leachate and Contact Water Management”

Check back for more details, which will be posted as the agenda is finalized.

How Future Use Guides Ash Pond Closure Strategies – WOCA 2019

April 18, 2019

World of Coal Ash in St. Louis, May –13-16, 2019 event details.

Even the simplest impoundment closures come with design challenges. It is a challenge to navigate project constraints, whether technical, regulatory, or financial, to design and implement an effective closure strategy. Cost often helps to determine the “balance” between project constraints when the future end use of a closed CCR surface impoundment or the property it occupies is undefined. When a post-closure end use is defined, finding balance among project constraints to best serve that future use provides rewarding challenges.

SCS Engineers has navigated this balancing act on impoundment closure projects during facility decommissioning. Through a presentation of case studies, you will learn how this team has approached ash pond closure planning and execution where the future use of the impoundment site ranged from undefined to the home of a new solar photovoltaic installation. Examples also include potential future industrial use or property sale.

Case studies will highlight how geotechnical, hydrological, regulatory, or simple physical constraints have influenced the design and implementation of CCR surface impoundment closures.
