Description $84.5 million from the Local Toxics Control
Account - The State contains hundreds of hazardous
waste sites that threaten the state’s water resources,
including those used for public drinking water, and
many of our municipal landfills are currently or
potentially hazardous waste sites and present serious
threats to human health and the environment. The
costs of eliminating these threats in many cases are
beyond the financial means of local governments
and ratepayers. Based on cleanup criteria and
decisions made by the Toxics Cleanup Program,
grants are made to local governments to clean up
publicly-owned contaminated sites and related

The map entitled “2007-2009 Remedial Action
Grants” identifies those projects that are anticipated
to need grant funding. The project list is not
prioritized as actual funding and sizing of individual
grants are a function of final appropriation.

Upon Legislative appropriation, the program will
prioritize the site list and assign funding based on
the threat to human health and the environment,
whether the project is new or on-going, the ability to
leverage economic development, the ability to
complete the cleanup action during the biennium,
and whether the project can be staged differently to
maximize available funding and cleanup work.
