The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is hosting five public hearings on the Agency’s June 21, 2010 proposal to regulate the disposal and management of coal ash from coal-fired power plants. EPA’s proposal is the first-ever national effort to ensure the safe disposal and management of coal ash from coal-fired power plants.
EPA invites the public to provide written comments on the proposal until September 21, 2010. Each hearing will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 9 p.m., local time or later if necessary. The public is encouraged to preregister to speak at the hearings, to help the Agency plan for attendance at the hearings. Walk-ins and written comments will be accepted at each hearing as well. The proceedings of each hearing will be transcribed by a court reporter for the official record. The Agency will consider all significant comments in its final decision.
