Risk-Based Remediation

Introduction

Session Law 2015-286 allows risk-based remediation as a cleanup option at contaminated sites where the use of remedial actions and land-use controls can reliably ensure that affected properties are safe for their intended use. In addition to DEQ’s Underground Storage Tank, Dry-cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act, and the Pre-Regulatory Land Fill Programs, risk-based remediation can now be considered in all DEQ environmental cleanup programs. 

A Remediation Team comprised of staff from the department’s cleanup programs is developing procedures and guidelines for implementing risk-based remediation according to the new law.
