Whether it’s a clean closure or a cap-in-place, no two ash ponds are exactly the same. That’s why Charah® Solutions believes that no two ash pond solutions should ever be the same.

In our view, ash pond plans that take the cookie cutter approach often miss opportunities to deliver important benefits to the utility. That’s why Charah Solutions places a strong emphasis on up-front planning, information-gathering and design. If we can make your ash or gypsum pond solution work better for you down the road, it will be well worth the time to craft a customized approach that provides the exact solution to the challenges you face.

At Charah Solutions, we strive for innovative solutions that provide utilities with an economic alternative to traditional piecemeal approaches, while addressing EPA-mandated ash and effluent regulations without disruptions to the power plant.

Our integrated solutions address multiple compliance programs at an economical price, with ash surface impoundment problems solved and non-ash wastewaters treated - all in one simple process.

In fact, taking an innovative approach could be the single most important factor that ensures your project will meet the utility’s specific needs, while also being in compliance with all EPA-mandated coal combustion residuals (CCR) regulations and deadlines.

With over 30 years of experience in ash pond excavation, management and closure, we know the kind of innovations that work best. Whether it’s daily maintenance excavation, a clean closure, a cap-in-place, or creative solutions such as our EnviroDitch®, Charah Solutions provides the proven experience and expertise to handle every regulatory, engineering and technical issue.

This includes power plants that use a wet slurry method for ash handling where we have a proven track record of completing the operations while keeping the pond operating in compliance and ready to receive ash slurry. We also have the experience to meet the utility’s needs by performing dredging, excavating or implementing a dry removal process.

That’s why we value the capability to provide innovative customized solutions. Experience has taught us that it is essential to the success of your next ash pond project.
