Cleanup removes coal-combustion waste from pondJuly 10, 2018
By The Associated Press
CORYDON — Crews working for a southern Indiana county have finished removing a coal-combustion waste from a farm pond where it was dumped as fill nearly a decade ago.
Workers recently completed removing fly ash cinders from the Harrison County farm pond where it was placed in March 2010.
The News and Tribune reports that work is expected to begin soon on removing the same type of waste from an impound lot in New Albany.
Fly ash cinders are one of the wastes produced by coal-fired power generation.
The waste being removed was placed at both sites after Floyd County stopped using them to improve traction on snow- and ice-covered roads.
Floyd County is paying to remove the waste from both sites and move it to a municipal landfill in Louisville, Kentucky.
