MassDEP has prepared revisions to the Massachusetts Contingency Plan ("MCP", 310 CMR 40.0000), which are the regulations governing the notification, assessment, cleanup and closure of oil and hazardous material disposal sites.
The revisions address numerous aspects of the cleanup regulations, including new standards for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
A Revised Public Hearing Notice, published on May 3, 2019, updates the Public Hearing Notice made by MassDEP in the Massachusetts Register on April 19, 2018 regarding the MCP amendments. This Revised Public Hearing Notice is made to provide notice that certain typographical errors in the amendments to the MCP, as posted on MassDEP’s website prior to April 20, 2019, have been corrected. The corrections pertain to certain RC and Method 1 standards for the six perfluoroalkyl substances referred to above.
As indicated below, the Department is soliciting both written and oral public comment on these proposals. Four public hearings will be held between May 20 - 29, 2019. The public comment period ends July 19, 2019.
