Stable Soil
A Workshop Focused on Regional Soil Stabilization Opportunities
Hosted by Organized by the EERC and sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8

Workshop Postponed - date TBD

Stabilizing Soil Throughout the Upper Great Plains

Coal-based power plants in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana produce fly ash with moderate to high concentrations of calcium, making it a reactive material valuable for construction applications. Some regional fly ash may not be suitable for use in concrete or located advantageously for the concrete markets, so other construction applications, like soil stabilization, can provide opportunities to utilize these materials and contribute to sustainable construction practices.

To further examine and optimize the utilization of these materials, the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) has organized Stable Soil ’09: A Workshop Focused on Regional Soil Stabilization Opportunities, set for mid-October, 2009, in Medora, North Dakota.

This 1-day training course is best suited for the following:
  • State environmental protection agencies
  • Departments of Transportation (DOTs)
  • Road construction companies
The workshop will focus on a combination of classroom instruction and a field demonstration.

Topics include the following:
  • Fly ash properties
  • Placement techniques
  • Environmental and engineering performance
  • Regulations
Participants who complete the Stable Soil Workshop will be eligible to earn 5.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). For general information contact Kendra Morrison (EPA Reg. 8) by telephone at 303-312-6145
