The establishment of environmentally acceptable ash disposal reservoirs for a steam electric station is achieved through the design of impervious embankments and foundation cutoffs. Field and laboratory data are evaluated with respect to geotechnical and hydrologic aspects. The systems are designed to meet the water management and water pollution requirements. Rigid field and laboratory quality control activities are developed to control construction and achieve the design criteria. An instrument monitoring and surveillance program is used to evaluate long term performance and regulatory compliance.
