Waste Site Remediation Permit Streamlining Task Force Report

Third-Party Professional Site Remediation Report
 

Waste Permit Streamlining Task Force

The Department of Environmental Management is committed to improving its performance on an ongoing basis. As an agency charged with protecting the environment and public health, we believe we should always be looking for ways to be more effective as well as efficient. As a government agency, we also believe that accountability is key to our ability to obtain public support for, and participation in, our programs.

In this spirit, the Department is engaged in a series of program evaluations, with a specific emphasis on streamlining of permitting processes. We use the task force approach to bring Department staff, the regulated community and other interested parties together to identify streamlining goals and strategies. This new Task Force will discuss to what extent statutory, regulatory, policy or administrative changes are necessary to streamline the regulatory process without compromising our environmental mandate, and especially to expedite the cleanup and reuse of contaminated properties. The discussion will certainly address, although not be limited to, issues related to the State's Brownfields program. An overview of the site remediation program and its regulatory process has been prepared to help the reader to better understand the program being evaluated.
