Title Data Summary Report for Hanford Site Coal Ash Characterization.

Abstract There are significant deposits of coal ash at various locations in the river corridor operable units from previous coal-fired power plant operations. Although coal ash from Hanford boiler facilities was previously determined to be nondangerous and nonregulated from a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste perspective, a more complete study of coal ash at primary disposal locations was undertaken to further characterize the concentrations and leachability of coal ash metals in various Hanford Site locations.
