The report gives results of research to: (1) develop methodology for the field-collection of coal-ash leachate; (2) chemically characterize ash leachates from power plants using different coal sources; (3) determine the characteristics of the hydrogeochemical environment in which the leachate occurs; and (4) determine the attenuation of coal-ash leachate by various soil types. Groundwater monitoring wells were installed around ash ponds at two TVA plants. Continuous soil-core samples were collected and analyzed periodically. Ash leachate was percolated through different clays and soils to study attenuation rates.
