Title: Hazardous and Solid Waste Management System: Disposal of Coal Combustion Residues From Electric Utilities: Amendments to the National Minimum Criteria (Phase 2) 

On April 17, 2015, EPA promulgated national minimum criteria for existing and new coal combustion residuals (CCR) landfills and surface impoundments (2015 CCR rule). Following promulgation of this rule, stakeholders have raised issues related to specific requirements of the final rule. On March 15, 2018, EPA proposed several changes to the 2015 CCR rule in a rulemaking titled Phase 1.” In this action, EPA is proposing additional targeted changes to the 2015 CCR rule and is soliciting comment on other issues. Included in this action are proposals addressing two provisions of the 2015 CCR rule that were remanded back to EPA by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on August 21, 2018.
