Coal ash reuse project moves forward with mining permit approval

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources on Sept. 1 approved a mining permit modification for the coal ash reuse project at the Brickhaven No. 2 Mine Tract “A” in Chatham County. The approval will allow construction of a rail spur, which will be used to transport coal ash to be used as structural fill in the mine.

Green Meadow, LLC and Charah, Inc. requested the permit modification in July. After a thorough review of the application, a draft permit was developed and made available July 30-Aug. 30 for public review and comment. As part of the department’s effort to obtain feedback from citizens, a public hearing was held Aug. 12 in Pittsboro.
      
Several modifications to the permit were approved earlier this year, including redesigning the erosion and sedimentation control measures at the site, reducing the size of the site and changing the method for reclaiming the mine to allow for construction of structural fill using coal combustion byproducts.   A copy of the approved modified mining permit is available on DENR’s website at http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/guest/brickhavenminesite
