Petroleum remediation program

The Petroleum remediation program (PRP) protects human health and the environment by evaluating, minimizing, or correcting petroleum contamination impacts to soil and water caused by leaking storage tank systems. The website includes general information, a summary of tank sites, policy updates, links, and more.


Brownfields are abandoned, idled, or underused industrial and commercial properties where financing expansion or redevelopment is complicated by actual or suspected environmental contamination. The Brownfields page contains general information, guidance materials, contact information, a summary of recent response actions, links, and more.

Superfund Program

The Superfund Program identifies, investigates and determines appropriate cleanup plans for abandoned or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites where a release or potential release of a hazardous substance poses a risk to human health or the environment. The website contains general information, annual reports, fact sheets, links to maps and What's in My Neighborhood, and more.
