EPA Plans Hearings on Coal Waste Proposal
Monday, July 19, 2010
Representatives of the abrasives industry and other interested parties will be able to speak at public hearings on the EPA’s proposed rule to regulate coal combustion residuals (CCR), including coal slag, according to an announcement from the Environmental Protection Agency in the July 15, 2010, Federal Register.
The proposed CCR rule, which was published in the June 21, 2010, Federal Register, addresses regulation of fly ash, bottom ash, boiler (coal) slag, and flue gas desulfurization sludge from coal-burning power plants. Because of the number of requests received for public hearings about the CCR proposal, the EPA has scheduled five hearings around the country.
“The hearings will provide the public with an opportunity to present data, views or arguments concerning the proposed rule,“ according to the EPA. “Persons who wish to present oral testimony at one or more of the public hearings must preregister at least three business days prior to the hearing.”
Persons who want to present oral testimony at the hearing may preregister at http://www.epa.gov/. For those who wish to present oral testimony but are unable to preregister at the above web site, contact either Bonnie Robinson at 703-308–8429 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Elaine Eby at 703-308–8449 or email@example.com.
Robinson and Eby may also be contacted for additional details about the public hearings.
