EnCAP-IT’s Statement Regarding Senate Bill 1398 Response: Coal Combustion Residuals Ash Pond Closure Assessment

EnCAP-IT has reviewed the Senate Bill 1398 Response: Coal Combustion Residuals Ash Pond Closure Assessment prepared by AECOM for Dominion Energy, dated November 2017 and posted on Dominion’s website on December 1, 2017.  Whereas, EnCAP-IT solutions are mentioned on page 53 and page 267 within the report.

EnCAP-IT finds AECOM’s description and analysis of EnCAP-IT’s solutions erroneous, baseless and misleading.  EnCAP-IT and AECOM never met, never communicated, nor exchanged any documents regarding EnCAP-IT’s solutions.  EnCAP-IT looks forward to correcting the record and showing that it’s solutions meet all requirements and are, in many ways, superior to those sited in the report.
