Huesker thinks the EPA will insist that all CCR surface impoundments be designed, constructed, operated and maintained with adequate slope protection to protect against surface erosion at the site.

With best practices in various geosynthetic/textile applications (surface erosion, capping, lining, slope reinforcement, base reinforcement, etc.) in mind, Huesker has responded to the EPA rulings by offering a comprehensive set of solutions including services.

“We understand the electric power generating companies will respond differently to the recent rulings of the EPA and each of those companies will have varying needs based on current conditions, however, we wanted to be prepared to help the industry address their varying needs by building a complete multifaceted set of solutions for them to consider,” said Todd Julian, vice president, sales and marketing for Huesker.
