coal ash wanted ASAP

We received a request from the Springfield Vt hydroelectric plant asking if we could provide any coal ashes which they presently require to seal a leak in the dam. I returned their call and apparently they are serious. Go figure. I dispose of mine daily and cant help him out. Nows the time to get rid of your pile. Call John W at the dam at 802 223 7141. He's expecting your call. I dont know how far they"ll drive but if your pile is anywhere near Vt you're probably close enough .

How much do they pay a ton for the ash :lol: If they buy coal for me I'll make them all the ashes they want. Will they carry the tubs out for me too :lol: All kidding aside, it's great to find someone that wants it. :D

You might want to see if "Mt Smitty" is open for mining. IIRC Smitty dumps his ashes on his property at times.

I have a 55 gal trash can (full) that I keep for use on the driveway but that's it.

I was looking for a cabin up that way, but I may look elsewhere after hearing about them plugging a leak with coal ash....lol

Just pick one with enough elevation and you should be fine. :D

I'm sure the request is legitimate. It works quite well. When the head stock gate is closed, water still leaks past the side rails of the gate. Dumping just a few wheel barrow loads in front of the gate will reduce the flow to a trickle.
A few good old coal ashes can cut your heart rate in half when you are walking up a 12 foot diameter tube with a flashlight to the base of the dam.

Only way I'm trudging through the picker bushes & digging up wet, soggy coal ash is if I get paid by the mile .... and get a bonus. :idea: ;)

IDK, Smitty, wouldn't it be pretty cool to be personally responsible for the export of an actual product created in MA? You might make the news, though back east it probably would trigger an investigation. :gee:

I have about a ton worth of ash out behind the shop...maybe I should keep adding to it as a retirement fund.
