Assessing Environmental Impacts Associated with Bases and Subgrades Stabilized with Coal Combustion Products (CCPs)

Conventional construction materials are becoming increasingly expensive as demands on resources intensify. In addition, concerns regarding energy use and greenhouse gas emission associated with manufacturing and delivering conventional construction materials has led to significant interest in exploring alternative materials such as recycled materials. Stabilizing bases and subgrades with coal combustion products (CCPs) represents a way to upgrade highway infrastructure while utilizing recycled materials. This project will use WiscLEACH to assess groundwater impacts caused by the leaching of trace elements from pavement materials stabilized with CCPs.
