Due to the slides involving coal ash storage and the occasional leachate from basins to groundwater, there has been increasing interest in this substance. Although it has historically been considered a relatively non-toxic material, there has been concern about the hazards posed by fly ash in fugitive dusts and the metals in the leachate (both to groundwater and surface waters).
We have conducted several risk assessments involving occupational exposure to these dusts during remediation, as well as, assessments of ash basins. We have served as experts in some of the litigation.
