MassDEP has convened a Reclamation Soil Workgroup consisting of representatives from the legal, environmental consulting, and risk assessment communities, along with MassDEP staff, municipal officials, community residents, developers and other interested groups. The goal of the workgroup is to develop a program for the reclamation of quarries, sand pits and gravel pits pursuant to Section 277 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ FY2015 Budget.
