Draft initial list from EPA outlines facility webpage needs

Thursday, August 25, 2016 - 12:00am

The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today released a draft list of coal combustion residual (CCR) projects that require additional information to be posted on their websites. The Brickhaven structural fill project in Chatham coundy is listed on the initial draft inventory list because it must publish a compliance website.

The Brickhaven facility is subject to both state and federal requirements. Of those, North Carolina’s requirements for environmental protection are more stringent. The federal rule imposes no additional health or environmental protection requirements.
