Coal Combustion By-Product Regulations [9 VAC 20 ‑ 85]
Amendment 2 - Additional Restrictions on the Use and Placement of CCB
[Withdrawn 2/7/2011]
Reason for Withdrawal
This action is being withdrawn due to the length of time that has passed since the NOIRA was originally issued and because of rulemaking at the federal level that will impact the regulation of coal combustion residuals.
General Information
Action Summary This regulation provides for the use, reuse and reclamation of coal combustion byproducts (CCB). Administrative procedures are provided for the submission of appropriate documentation for the use of CCB. In addition, the regulation establishes appropriate standards for siting, design, construction, operation, and closure of projects using CCB. During the development of amendment 7 to the Virginia Solid Waste Management Regulations (VSWMR), the amendment 7 technical advisory committee (TAC) discussed (i) incorporating the Coal Combustion By-Products Regulation into the VSWMR and (ii) areas of the Coal Combustion By-Products Regulations that should be reviewed. As a result of those discussions, the amendment 7 TAC recommended that the Coal Combustion Byproducts Regulation remain separate from the VSWMR and that any necessary revisions to the program should be undertaken in a separate rulemaking. The CCB regulations will be updated to incorporate changes to state statue enacted by the 2009 General Assembly. These statutory changes address the placement of CCB in an area located within a 100-year floodplain. This amendment will also consider including additional restrictions on the use and placement of CCB.
