PROJECT

Coal Combustion Residuals Consolidation

CLIENT

Fortune 250 Energy Client – Mid-Atlantic

Under-budget CCR consolidation. In record time.

SITUATION

Stabilize and consolidate coal ash from 4 ponds into a larger perimeter pond 

To meet new EPA Coal Combustion Residuals requirements, saturated material had to be removed within just 6 months—no, wait, make that 4 months—and dried for use in a pond which had to be capped within 2 years.

SOLUTION

Glover developed an alternative methodology to improve chances of meeting all client goals 

Glover used mechanical dredging rather than hydraulic so the material could be moved quickly and stockpiled in a condition suitable for use as subgrade material, while complying with all state and federal regulations.

OUTCOME

  • By creating a unique teaming approach with a specialty dewatering company, Glover was able to excavate material exposed to less than a week of pre‐drainage dewatering.
  • 963,000 cubic yards of CCR material was moved in 4 months, far beyond the original goal of 750,000 cubic yards in 6 months.
  • The project was completed in record time with zero recordable accidents, lost time or environmental impacts.
