Waste Reduction


Brownfields Reuse Initiative
Cleanup Standards and Guidance


The Department of Environmental Conservation recognizes that reuse of brownfield properties is a time and fact sensitive process.  Each project is managed in a way that considers the specific risk presented by the contaminants identified.  This provides brownfields developers with a flexible approach for meeting their redevelopment needs.  Utilization of containment technologies and institutional controls as means of achieving safe, practical and economical cleanups are supported as a cornerstone of this approach.

The following links are provided to standards and guidance utilized by the Department in the management of brownfield projects.
