Ash Dewatering at Work

By October 22, 2014 No Comments

At a power station in the mid-Atlantic region, fly ash, bottom ash and boiler slag from discontinued coal-fired operations is stored in five surface impoundments, some of which date back to the mid-1950s.  Acting in compliance with current environmental regulations, the owner is moving ahead with plans to consolidate the four smaller impoundments, which are unlined, into the fifth and largest of the ponds, which will ultimately be capped.  In the first phase of the consolidation work, Moretrench was contracted by the General Contractor to dewater a 37-acre pond.
