Under MassDEP's Waste Site Cleanup Program, the cleanup of oil and hazardous material disposal sites may consider the current and likely future use of the property. If a cleanup is based on anything less than "unrestricted use", then the closure must include an enforceable Activity and Use Limitation ("AUL") that specifies the allowable and prohibited use of the property.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) is required to audit response actions at a statistically significant number of disposal sites.
Varying levels of public notice and involvement are possible under the Massachusetts Contingency Plan, depending upon the regulatory status of the site, and the level of interest within the community. This page provides links to information about Public Involvement in Waste Site Cleanup.
This series of explanations, guidelines, recommendations, and tips are provided to help you through the process of preventing and cleaning up spills on your property.
Those private parties who are financially responsible under Massachusetts law for assessing and cleaning up confirmed and suspected hazardous waste sites must retain a licensed Hazardous Waste Site Cleanup Professional to oversee the assessment and cleanup work.
