This collection contains digitized site investigation and remediation reports and data from the RI DEM through a partnership with Brown University's Superfund Research Program and University Library and includes documents associated with Federal CERCLIS program (“SFA” sites), sites notified under the State program, sites investigated for hazardous substances (“HWM” sites), and Brownfield sites. The goal of the program is to provide fair, comprehensive and consistent regulation of the investigation and remediation of hazardous waste, hazardous material and petroleum releases, implemented in a timely and cost-effective manner. The State program is designed to determine if a site poses a threat to human health and the environment and efficiently determine a remedy that is effective but not overly burdensome to the parties involved. This program also supports the redevelopment and reuse of contaminated sites through the Brownfields program. Sites are identified, evaluated, cleaned up and brought back to beneficial reuse in Rhode Island communities.
