Coal Ash Pond Closures
Working with public utilities, engineers, and contractors to implement cost-effective solutions for challenging wet ash pond closure projects
Sevenson’s niche in the CCR Closure market is utilizing our Dredging, Dewatering & Wastewater Treatment (WWT) Services
Our coal ash closure experience began in 2009 where hydraulically dredged and processed over 2.5MCY of ash from the Emory River. On large complex closure projects Sevenson partners with prime contractors and engineers to collaborate, as a team, to safely and efficiently complete closure requirements.
We utilize our full inventory of mechanical and hydraulic dredges, pumps, piping, tanks, desanding/scalping units, filter presses, centrifuges, and other essential equipment to support routine and complex CCR closure projects. In addition, Sevenson owns, operates, and maintains a full range of equipment and resources to design, build, O + M on-site water treatment plants to support dredging, dewatering and field operations.
Sevenson’s ability to conduct treatability studies at our laboratory for process and treatment applications, facilitates the development of systems which can be efficiently mobilized, assembled, and placed into operation. In-house technical and engineering personnel support these operations. The systems designed by Sevenson meet regulatory requirements associated with closure projects.
