  • No Ash At All
  • Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA-EPD)

    Georgia EPD told the Georgia House Environment and Natural Resources Committee (HENR) that the EPD rules adopted last year were sufficient, even though they don’t require public notice. Since this year’s legislative non-action, GA-EPD has put up a Coal Ash Information web page, which says:

    The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) offers public announcements regarding Coal Ash Pond Dewatering Plans and Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Management Plans. The information will be posted on this web page.

    That web page has a form to enter your email address for updates. It doesn’t have any CCR Management Plans yet, but it does link to two Coal Ash Pond Dewatering Plans, for Georgia Power’s Plants McManus in Glynn County and McDonough-Atkinson in Cobb County.
