Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This guide covers procedures for the design and construction of engineered structural fills using coal combustion by-products (CCBs).

1.2 The utilization of CCBs under this guide is a component of a pollution prevention program; Guide E 1609 describes pollution prevention activities in more detail. Utilization of CCBs in this manner conserves land, natural resources, and energy.

1.3 This guide applies only to CCBs produced solely by the combustion of coal. It does not apply to ash or other combustion products derived from the burning of waste; municipal, industrial, or commercial garbage; sewage sludge or other refuse, or both; derived fuels; wood; wood waste products; rice hulls; agricultural waste; or other non-coal fuels or other such fuels blended with coal, or some combination thereof.

1.4 The testing, engineering, and construction practices for CCB fills are similar to generally accepted practices for natural soil fills. The CCB structural fills should be designed with generally accepted engineering practices.

1.5 Laws and regulations governing the use of CCBs vary by state. The user of this guide has the responsibility to determine and comply with applicable requirements.

1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
