The bill would also require bonding of coal ash impoundment
owners in the case of disaster.
We all know that fish depend on healthy habitat and if we can work with the state to increase the value of habitats like Bee Gum and other impoundments
to make them more valuable, that's going to help them manage the fisheries.
This study was conducted on Maples Creek Lake (39 ha, Carroll County, Tennessee, N 35.863110[degrees] W 88.292060[degrees], Mercator) and Brown's Creek Lake (67 ha, Henderson County, Tennessee, N 35.730986[degrees] W 88.292060[degrees], Mercator), both of which are impoundments
with maximum depths of 4-5 m.
A 1995 Senate budget committee report noted, "This tug-of-war goes to the most basic tenet of the American democratic system of government--the balance of powers between the executive and the legislative branches of government--the power of the purse versus the impoundment
In the immediate aftermath of the catastrophe, Congressman Nick Rahall (D-WV) introduced a bill that would have authorized the Department of Interior to promulgate uniform federal design, engineering, and performance standards for new coal-ash impoundments
. (13) Three congressional committees devoted six hearings to the need for proper regulation of coal-ash wastes.
In particular, EPA cited data from a 2009 state survey that showed that over 60% of states do not require liners or groundwater monitoring for surface impoundments

Overall the sinking of the canal cross profiles seems to be determined by the subsurface ground discharge from burrows and by accumulation of mineral and organic sediments in beaver impoundments
(Butler, 1995; Butler & Malanson, 2005; Lamsodis & Poskus, 2006).
Local property values are especially important to the economics of dam removal for small impoundments
because the primary and often only value of small impoundments
is their aesthetic/scenic value.
Generally, studies suggesting that beaver have the potential to alter plant community structure through impacts on species diversity have been primarily conducted at active beaver impoundments
. However, Donkor and Fryxell (1999, 2000) also found the effects on species diversity patterns at an abandoned dam site of three years.
