INTRODUCTION

Golden Valley Electric Association, Inc. (GVEA) has prepared this Fugitive Dust Control Plan (FDCP) for its Healy Power Plant in Healy, Alaska. The FDCP was developed consistent with the requirements described in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Rule under Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). This FDCP is to define the following:

• Fugitive dust control measures to minimize CCR1 from becoming airborne from identified

sources at the facility.

• Procedures to stabilize CCR material to prevent wind erosion.

• Procedures to log citizen complaints received by GVEA involving CCR fugitive dust events at the facility.

• Procedures to periodically assess the effectiveness of this FDCP. To meet the above requirements, this FDCP:

• Identifies the CCR fugitive dust source areas.

• Identifies the primary and contingent control measures to minimize CCR fugitive dust at each source area.

• Describes the visual monitoring and corrective action program to monitor the implementation and continual effectiveness of the CCR fugitive dust control measures.

• Describes CCR fugitive dust control training elements.

• Identifies recordkeeping and notification requirements including recording citizen complaints.

• Identifies the plan administrative requirements including assessment of plan effectiveness.

(13)

For Unit 1, the existing coal ash handling system (constructed in the 1990’s) consists of a primary settling pond, a recirculating pond, an emergency overflow pond, and a drying area. The primary settling pond (Ash Pond) receives sluiced coal ash (i.e., bottom ash, slag and fly ash) and non-CCR wastes from Unit 1. The Recirculating Pond receives water from the Ash Pond to capture the excess water from the coal ash for recycling through the plant. The Emergency Overflow Pond is connected to the Recirculating Pond by a culvert to prevent both the Ash Pond and Recirculating Pond from overfilling. All three ponds are unlined to facilitate dewatering of the sluiced coal ash, which allows the wastewater2 to infiltrate into the ground

and/or evaporate. Approximately once per week the settled ash is dredged from the Ash Pond and placed in the Ash Drying Area (defined as CCR landfill per CCR Rule) where excess water drains and evaporates prior to haulage to and disposal at Usibelli Coal Mine (UCM), located approximately four miles north from the facility (Figure 1).

For Unit 2, a dry handling process is used to manage the generated coal ash. Slag/bottom ash accumulates in a water-filled tank and is removed by a slag drag chain system and transferred to an intermediate storage silo. Fly ash is collected using a baghouse and transferred to a pugmill where water is added to the ash to minimize fugitive dust. The wetted fly ash and slag/bottom ash materials are loaded directly into trucks in an enclosed bay for transport and disposal at the UCM.

GVEA plans to pursue closure and removal of the three ponds and the Ash Drying Area under the CCR Rule and is currently overseeing plant upgrades to manage coal ash and non-CCR waste streams from Unit 1 through the Unit 2 facility, eliminating the need for these four CCR units. Anticipated completion date for completed removal of all four CCR units is November 2022. Upon removal of the CCR units, this FDCP will be modified to address the changes at the facility. During construction activities, GVEA and its contractor will adhere to procedures outlined in this FDCP to ensure fugitive dust control measures are being implemented, properly operated or maintained.

SOURCES OF CCR FUGITIVE DUST

This section identifies and describes the potential sources of CCR fugitive dust at the Healy Power Plant. Potential CCR fugitive dust could occur within one of the five main areas:

1. Boiler

2. Ash Storage Silos

3. Coal Ash Ponds (Ash Pond, Recirculating Pond, and Emergency Overflow Pond) 4. Ash Drying Area

5. CCR Truck Access Road

A description of each area is provided below. Figure 2 shows the location of the areas.

2.1

BOILER

Slag/bottom ash is collected from the Unit 1 and Unit 2 boilers using a water-filled trough/tank. At Unit 1, sluiced slag/bottom ash is conveyed via pipe to the Ash Pond for dewatering. At Unit 2, slag/bottom ash is dewatered using a wet drag conveyor and collected in a silo inside the ash unloading building.

Potential CCR Fugitive Dust Source

Fugitive dust from the bottom of the boilers is not considered significant because the high moisture content of the bottom ash and slag at Unit 1 and the bottom ash and slag enclosure at Unit 2 minimize the potential for fugitive dust.

2.2

ASH STORAGE SILOS

Fly ash from Unit 2 is captured by a baghouse before the gases reach the stack and are vented to atmosphere. The fly ash from the baghouse is collected by gravity to a hopper located at the bottom of the baghouse, and is stored in a silo. Prior to haulage to and disposal at UCM, the dry fly ash is transferred to a pugmill for conditioning with water. The conditioned fly ash has the consistency of thick mud as it is transferred to open haul trucks in the enclosed portion of the plant building used for ash loading (Ash Unloading Building). As mentioned above, moist bottom ash and slag from Unit 2 is collected and stored in a separate silo inside the Ash Unloading Building, and are also loaded into open haul trucks inside the Ash Unloading Building.

Potential CCR Fugitive Dust Source

Because the bottom ash, slag, and fly ash from Unit 2 are conditioned or moist, potential fugitive dust is minimized when loading trucks from ash storage silos. Fugitive dust is not considered significant from truck loading operations inside the Ash Unloading Building. However, fugitive dust may result from potential CCR material spills and through building openings.

(16)

2.3

COAL ASH PONDS

Bottom ash, slag, and fly ash from Unit 1 are combined and sluiced via pipe to the Ash Pond for dewatering. The accumulated coal ash in the Ash Pond is mechanically removed using an excavator and placed at the Ash Drying Area to allow excess water to drain and evaporate. Because a minimal amount of coal ash enters the Recirculating Pond, the pond does not typically require frequent dredging. Accumulated ash within the Recirculating Pond has only been dredged a few times since it was constructed in the late 1990s.

The Emergency Overflow Pond is rarely used. However, if overflow at the Ash Pond and/or Recirculating Pond should occur, the water is conveyed to the Emergency Overflow Pond. Generally, coal ash is minimal or absent in water that enters the Emergency Overflow Pond. Potential CCR Fugitive Dust Source

Due to the high moisture content of the coal ash in the ponds, the potential for fugitive dust is minimized. However, CCR fugitive dust could occur from operations performed on the banks of the settling ponds: vehicular traffic and CCR material handling (loading operations).

2.4

ASH DRYING AREA

Coal ash from the settling ponds is stockpiled at the Ash Drying Area for further dewatering prior to transport. The coal ash is loaded with a loader or excavator into open mine haul trucks for transport to UCM.

Potential CCR Fugitive Dust Source

CCR fugitive dust may result from vehicular traffic, CCR material loading/unloading operations, stockpiles, and potential CCR material spills.

2.5

CCR TRUCK ACCESS ROADS

Trucks enter the Ash Drying Area and the Ash Unloading Building from UCM Access Road at two different gates located at the north end of the property. Traffic routes are shown on Figure 2.

CCR FUGITIVE DUST CONTROL MEASURES

GVEA will implement fugitive dust control measures as appropriate to minimize the generation of CCR fugitive dust at the Healy Power Plant. Control measures can either be structures, policies, or procedures that are specifically intended to minimize dust generation. If new permanent controls are added, this FDCP will be updated. Fugitive dust control measures are discussed in more detail below for each emission source: outdoor loading/unloading operations, Ash Unloading Building operations, stockpiles, and vehicular traffic.

3.1

OUTDOOR LOADING / UNLOADING OPERATIONS

CCR material outdoor loading and unloading operations involve removing material from the Ash Pond, adding material to stockpiles at the Ash Drying Area, and loading material into trucks for offsite disposal. The following fugitive dust control measures will be conducted as necessary to reduce fugitive dust:

• Reduce drop height when transferring CCR materials from front-end loader/excavator to mine haul trucks to minimize spillage.

• Minimize the distance between the front-end loader/excavator and the truck.

• Load trucks to prevent their contents from dropping, leaking, blowing or otherwise escaping.

• Clean and properly dispose of excess spillage of CCR material from the loading/unloading area to prevent tracking of CCR material onto access road.

• Apply water to CCR material as needed to suppress fugitive dust during transfer operations. Water will be applied at rates that prevent runoff. Application of water will only be performed during non-freezing conditions.

• Adjust the rate/speed of equipment in the work area.

• Cover and secure CCR material in trucks prior to leaving the area to prevent the escape of material from the truck and to reduce the potential of it becoming airborne during transport.

• Stop specific fugitive dust-generating activities if wind directions and/or wind speeds are excessively contributing to fugitive dust generation and recommence activities when conditions improve.

3.2

ASH UNLOADING BUILDING OPERATIONS

At Unit 2, CCR materials are loaded from silos into open mine haul trucks inside the Ash Unloading Building. CCR materials are conditioned with water prior to transport to reduce the potential of ash becoming airborne during transport and to make material “workable” at the coal mine.

(18)

The building provides containment for CCR material spillage and fugitive dust. If spillage does occur or an accumulation of CCR material is observed on the building floor, the building floor and entrances/exits will be swept as practicable to reduce potential tracking of CCR material outside of the ash handling area. In addition, the following control measures will be conducted as necessary to reduce fugitive dust at building entrances/exits:

• Clean and properly dispose of excess spillage of CCR material from the building entrance/exit.

• Cover and secure CCR material in trucks prior to leaving the area to prevent the escape of material from the truck and to reduce the potential of material becoming airborne during transport.

• Sweep paved areas at and near the building entrances/exits.

• Building doors are to be kept closed when possible.

• Apply water and/or calcium chloride to unpaved truck accessible areas as needed to prevent fugitive dust only during non-freezing conditions. Water will be applied at rates that prevent runoff. Refer to Section 3.4.1 for procedures for calcium chloride application.

3.3

STOCKPILES

CCR material has high moisture content when initially stockpiled at the Ash Drying Area, which minimizes the potential for fugitive dust. Over time the stockpiles moisture content decreases until the CCR material has no remaining free liquids and is “workable” or meets the UCM prescribed physical criteria. “Workable” CCR material will be loaded directly into leak-proof trucksas soon as practical to reduce the potential for fugitive dust generation. If fugitive dust is observed from stockpiles, one or more of the following control measures will be implemented:

• Apply water, calcium chloride, and/or other fugitive dust suppressant to stockpiles only during non-freezing conditions. Water will be applied at rates that prevent runoff. Refer to Section 3.4.1 for procedures for calcium chloride application.

• Cover stockpiles that are inactive or intended for long-term storage with protective sheeting and secure to prevent wind erosion. Covers will be maintained until the stockpile is removed from area.

• Minimize the height of stockpiles.

3.4

VEHICULAR TRAFFIC

(19)

• Apply water or calcium chloride on unpaved areas and roads assessable by equipment and trucks that haul CCR materials as needed to prevent fugitive dust only during non-freezing conditions. Water will be applied at rates that prevent runoff. Refer to Section 3.4.1 for procedures for calcium chloride application.

• Mechanically sweep paved roads used to haul CCR material from the facility as needed whenever fugitive dust is observed.

• Keep speed limits to 10 miles per hour or less within the facility limits.

• Adjust the rate/speed of equipment in the work areas.

• Limit truck access to the designated areas and roads through the use of signage and/or barricades.

• Cover or secure CCR material in trucks prior to leaving the ash loading area to prevent the escape of material from the truck and to reduce the potential of it becoming airborne during transport.

• Maintain and improve roadways and material handling areas to reduce the potential for fugitive dust generation.

• Clean and properly dispose of excess spillage of CCR material from the material handling areas and roads to control tracking of CCR material.

• Stop specific fugitive dust-generating activities if wind directions and/or wind speeds are excessively contributing to fugitive dust generation and recommence activities when conditions improve.

• Place crushed gravel or stone at access road approaches to prevent tracking.

3.4.1 CALCIUM CHLORIDE APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Calcium chloride may be applied to roads, stockpiles, and other soil surfaces as a fugitive dust control measure during non-freezing conditions. Calcium chloride retains moisture and resists evaporation for prolonged periods of time, which reduces the potential of soils becoming airborne. To ensure safe and effective use of calcium chloride, calcium chloride will be applied according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. In general, application procedures are as follows:

• Blade and shape road/ground surface to remove ruts, washboards, potholes, and loose aggregate, and slope surface for positive drainage. Positive drainage is essential to good performance.

• Calcium chloride may be placed on road/ground surface as a solid or a liquid.

− Solid calcium chloride is to spread directly onto pre-wetted surfaces and apply water after calcium chloride has been applied.

− Liquid calcium chloride is applied using a tank truck with a rear-mounted distribution bar that spreads the liquid evenly over the road/ground surface.

• Apply calcium chloride at a rate specified by the manufacturer’s recommendations or guidelines for the appropriate application (i.e., heavy industrial road).

(20)

• During long periods of hot, dry weather, water the treated road surfaces as needed to reconstitute the treatment. Visually inspect road conditions periodically to ensure treatment remains as an effective fugitive dust control measure. Re-apply as needed.

(21)

4.

VISUAL INSPECTIONS AND CORRECTIVE ACTIONS

Visual inspections will be performed periodically to monitor the implementation and continual effectiveness of control measures. Corrective actions will be conducted as necessary in order to eliminate issues at the Healy Power Plant.

4.1

VISUAL INSPECTIONS

Visual inspections will cover all areas of the facility where CCR materials are managed and have the potential to become airborne from source areas: Ash Storage Silos, Emergency Overflow Pond, Ash Pond, Recirculating Pond, Ash Drying Area and CCR Truck Access Road. Visual inspections will be performed periodically throughout the year and more frequently during CCR unit closure activities (i.e., CCR removal and site grading) noted in Section 1.3 and during the summer when conditions are commonly dry. The inspections will be conducted by a “qualified person” who possesses the knowledge and skills to assess conditions and activities that could generate fugitive dust, and who can also evaluate the effectiveness of control measures.

Visual inspection forms for each of the source areas are included in Appendix A. Each inspection form includes inspection questions relevant to the source of any fugitive dust, and identifies any corrective action as necessary to reduce CCR fugitive dust generation. The completed forms will be maintained electronically on GVEA’s server.

4.2

CORRECTIVE ACTIONS

If any of the following conditions are noted, GVEA will investigate and revise the selection, design, installation and implementation of fugitive dust control measures:

• Visual inspection finds that the fugitive dust control measures are not being implemented, properly operated, or maintained; or

• A citizen complaint is investigated, and it concludes that modifications to the fugitive dust control measures are necessary to alleviate the issue and prevent the fugitive dust from occurring again.

In addition, GVEA will review the selection, design, installation, and implementation of fugitive dust control measures if construction, or a change in operation at the Healy Power Plant, significantly effects the generation of CCR fugitive dust.

4.2.1 CORRECTIVE ACTION DOCUMENTATION

Discovery of conditions requiring investigation and/or revision of fugitive dust control measures will be documented on the CCR Fugitive Dust Investigation and Corrective Action Log (Appendix B). Documentation includes:

(22)

• Description of the issue/condition that triggered the need for an investigation;

• Summary of any corrective action or further investigation taken or to be taken. If no corrective action is necessary, the basis for that determination will be documented;

• Date corrective action was initiated; and

• Date corrective action was completed or expected to be completed.

Information from the corrective action log (Appendix B) will be documented in the Annual Fugitive Dust Control Report (Section 6.5), and the completed log will be maintained electronically on GVEA’s server.

(23)

5.

TRAINING

An integral part of the implementation of the FDCP is appropriate training for the personnel involved with CCR material management and visual inspections. Training will be provided to all personnel responsible for managing CCR material and ensuring CCR material is handled properly. Training will include but is not limited to managers, operators, laborers, inspectors, and subcontractors. In addition, two individuals will also be trained to implement the FDCP, and will be responsible for ensuring the FDCP is fully implemented and maintained.

Training will cover a subset of the following subjects as needed for individual level of responsibility:

• Overview and Importance

• Responsibilities

• Forms and Recordkeeping

• Reporting

• Corrective Actions

• Maintenance

• Fugitive Dust Observation Training

GVEA will provide training in the areas listed above to new employees as their job functions demand. Refresher training will be provided to existing employees on an annual basis.
