Coal combustion residuals impoundment; closure of certain CCR units.

Status:
Enacted

Chief Patron:
Riley Ingram (R)

Session:
2019 Regular Session

Summary

As introduced. Coal combustion residuals impoundment; closure.

Directs the Department of Environmental Quality (the Department), as it issues a permit for the closure of a coal combustion residuals (CCR) surface impoundment, commonly called a coal ash pond, located in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, to consider requirements of state and federal law and regulation, anticipated truck traffic, the long-term cost effectiveness of a proposed closure, and the ability of any closure to withstand extreme weather events or natural disasters. The bill provides that costs associated with any permit for closure, as well as any permit for capping in place, removing, or beneficially reusing any CCR from the site, shall be deemed in the public interest and recoverable by the utility. The bill provides that any such costs shall be fully allocated to all customers of the utility irrespective of the generation supplier of any particular customer. (Less)
