Closure In Place
For CCR Facilities located in States where the Federal CCR Rule allows CCR Units Closure In Place (CIP) meeting location restrictions, LWR brings two decades of pond closure experience in the dewatering, treatment and permitted discharge, regrading, and closure cap liner systems construction. LWR’s construction team and liner subcontractors have proven experience in the successful closure of over 300 impoundments over the last 20 years.
Closure By Removal
Many inactive CCR Impoundments were historically placed within five feet or less of the uppermost groundwater table. In some locations, State-specific regulations for CCR impoundments require stricter base liner requirements than the Federal CCR Rule for in-place closures. Additionally, in cases where the owning Utility or the Asset Transfer Redeveloper wish to pursue a more robust elimination of longterm liability, the Closure By Removal (CBR) Option becomes a more reliable course for CCR Units Closure. LWR has been actively engaged in project risk planning, providing budgetary scenarios for Optimal CBR, or Combined CIP and CBR Scenarios, that provide the best Decision Support Tools for our Client.
