Fly ash and bottom ash are collected in the facility’s air pollution equipment and transferred in a dry state to the onsite lined landfill. The Clover landfill is permitted by the Virginia DEQ and is constructed with a high density polyethylene liner that extends under the adjacent leachate collection system.
Two prior landfills areas reached their maximum storage capacity in April 2003 and were subsequently closed in compliance with Virginia DEQ regulations.
Clover also has two sludge sedimentation basins used for settling wastewater solids, including FGD, prior to removal and disposal the landfill. The sludge sedimentation basins are being retrofitted with a CCR rule compliant liner. The water from these ponds is recirculated and FGD wastewater is not released.
