Joshua R. More, a partner in Schiff Hardin's Environmental and Litigation groups, will speak during the McIlvaine Company Hot Topic Hour webinar, "Fly Ash Ponds and Ash Disposal Issues," on Thursday, Jan. 13. The webinar will address the potential impacts of the eventual regulations on the coal-fired power plant industry, methods that can be employed to mitigate the problems sure to be created, what will need to be done to comply with the expected regulations, and systems and technology for eliminating wet ash handling and slurry storage in ponds. During his portion of the presentation, Mr. More specifically will discuss compliance issues with the proposed CCR RCRA rule and present a case study of closure of an unlined CCR impoundment. He will also discuss how a utility was able to close an unlined surface impoundment by working with the state to develop a set of site-specific rules governing closure of a CCR impoundment.
