not be required.
C. Approval of the source of fly ash will be required. This is to be based on fly ash produced when the power plant is using specific materials, equipment, and processes. Any change in materials, equipment, and processes voids the source approval, and a new approval of the source will be required. Initial approval of Class N pozzolans will be based on meeting the additional requirements of Materials I.M. 491.17.
D. Inspection and acceptance of fly ash and natural pozzolans will be according to Materials I.M. 491.17.
