Contaminated Sites Search
Disclaimer: DEC makes every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC. It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.
Note: DEC's Contaminated Sites program has changed the terms used to describe closure, replacing 'closed' and 'conditionally closed' with ' Cleanup Complete' and 'Cleanup Complete - Institutional Controls.'
DEC gives 'Cleanup Complete' status when efforts to reduce hazardous substance contamination have achieved the most stringent levels established in state regulation, or the possibility of human exposure to any residual contamination is highly unlikely. The Department may allow hazardous substances to remain in the environment at a site if the contamination does not pose a risk to human health or the environment, but there may be conditions or restrictions associated with the site that require compliance by current or future owners/operators. Those conditions or restrictions require follow-up reporting; the department would then grant a 'Cleanup Complete - Institutional Controls' status (See 'Institutional Controls.').
Details on closure of any site are viewable on the Contaminated Sites database. A special report on Institutional Controls is available for sites with that designation.
For information specific to a site, please contact the staffperson assigned, as noted in the upper right area of each site cleanup chronology.
