An ash pond is an engineered structure for the disposal of bottom ash and fly ash. The wet disposal of ash into ash ponds is the most common ash disposal method but other methods include dry disposal in landfills. Currently, South Africa is one of the seven largest coal-producing and one of the top five coal-exporting countries in the world. Aerial image (photographed from a plane).
