ADDITIONAL COMMENTS The facility is a lined industrial landfill permitted to accept coal combustion by-product (CCB) predominately fly ash, bottom ash, gypsum, and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) residue from Duke Energy Progress and Duke Energy Carolinas power generating facilities. It is also permitted to receive other residues as stated in the facility operations plan section 2.1.2. 1. The facility is permitted to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The facility is in operation on an as needed basis. Operations occur infrequently outside of daylight hours. 2. The facility is secured by a locked gate. Personnel are on site during operating hours. The facility has all required information on signs. The facility permit, site plan, and operations plan were discussed during the inspection. 3. Facility access roads are of all-weather construction and are well maintained. Water trucks are utilized to control road dust, as needed. Water trucks were operating at the time of the inspection in accordance with the approved Dust Control Plan but significant rain (in excess of 2 inches) had occurred the prior day. Ponded water was observed around the chimney drains from the rain. 4. No windblown dust from landfill operations or roadways was noted during the inspection. Weather conditions during the inspection were cool and overcast. 5. Operational cover is being maintained as approved in the facility Operations Plan (Section 2.1.8.1 and Appendix I, Dust Control Plan). Minimal soil is utilized for cover; landfilled materials are moistened and allowed to crust over to prevent windblown material. Additionally, Gorilla-Snot is used when needed to aid in the process of crusting. The Steam Station was in operation (Units 1 and 2 online) at the time of the site visit. No ash was being placed in the working face during the visit for safety reasons because of the large group of people on the tour.
