Title: Neal North CCR Plan

On April 17, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the final version of the federal coal combustion residuals rule (CCR Rule) to regulate the disposal of CCR materials generated at coalfired units. The rule is being administered as part of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA, 42 U.S.C. §6901 et seq.), using the Subtitle D approach. MidAmerican Energy Company (MEC) is subject to the CCR Rule and as such has developed a Fugitive Dust Control Plan for all sites handling and disposing of CCR per 40 CFR 257.80. This report provides the Fugitive Dust Control Plan for the George Neal Station North (Neal North) located near Sergeant Bluff, Iowa. This Fugitive Dust Control Plan is in addition to, not in place of, any other applicable site permits, environmental standards, or work safety practices. Bottom ash and economizer ash is handled wet and sluiced to CCR impoundments onsite. Since the CCR is sluiced in a wet condition via pipeline to site impoundments, there are no potential fugitive dust sources in the handling of bottom/economizer ash both at the source of the CCR and at the discharge point in the impoundments. MEC is currently evaluating converting the system to dry handling; should dry handling be implemented for any of the units at Neal North, there will be an amendment to this plan to address dust controls for drying handling.
