Schnabel’s experience in the coal refuse field runs deep. The firm has designed and overseen the construction of coal refuse and coal combustion residuals (CCR) facilities for the power and mining industries for more than 40 years.

We have experience creating high-hazard classification coal refuse impoundments up to 600 feet tall—and we’ve drawn on that experience to develop construction and monitoring procedures for the “push out” of fill over existing wet slurry in CCR pond closures.
