CCR Rule Compliance Data and Information

In April 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) passed regulations—generally known as the CCR Rule—that govern the disposal of coal ash (coal combustion residuals or CCRs). The CCR Rule establishes technical requirements for CCR landfills and surface impoundments under subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the central federal regulatory program governing recycling and disposal of solid waste.

This website is intended to satisfy the requirement under the CCR Rule, 40 C.F.R. § 257.107, to maintain a publically accessible internet site containing the information specified in that section. The required information will be posted according to the deadlines and timeframes set forth in the CCR Rule.

Unless provided otherwise in the CCR Rule, information posted to these pages will be available for a period no less than five years from the initial posting date.
