Inactive Hazardous Sites Quick Links
The Inactive Hazardous Sites Branch, within the Superfund Section of the DWM, is responsible for oversight and approval of the assessment and remediation of all historical, and any recent accidental releases of hazardous substances and pollutants with the exceptions outlined below. The Branch oversees remedial actions, conducts any necessary enforcement of assessment and remediation at sites deemed to be a priority, and conducts the work itself at orphaned sites when state resources are available for such.
Note that often people are confused by the name of the Branch and the Act. “Inactive Hazardous Sites” by definition are any areas where a hazardous substance release has come to be located and would include active and inactive facilities and a variety of property types. The term “inactive” refers to the fact that cleanup was inactive at large numbers of sites at the time of program enactment.
