​NRECA filed comments with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in support of its proposal to approval Oklahoma's application to allow the state permit program for Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) to operate in lieu of the federal CCR program. NRECA believes Oklahoma's application demonstrates the state's ability and willingness to implement and enforce an authorized state CCR permit program. NRECA strongly supports protective management of CCR through state permits--states have demonstrated through the years the ability to implement delegated federal environmental programs.FULL COMMENTS
