Description The Department of Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup Program manages the cleanup of contaminated sites to protect human health and the environment.

DRAFT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT May 21 – July 9,2021: The Draft Green Remediation guidance is a new appendix that will be added to the Adaptation Strategies for Resilient Cleanup Remedies guidance, which was published November 2017. Ecology invites comments on this new Green Remediation Appendix D only. The comment period ends July 9, 2021.

NOT ACCEPTING COMMENTS AT THIS TIME: The Adaptation Strategies for Resilient Cleanup Remedies guidance was published in November 2017 and provides guidance to cleanup project managers who manage these sites to 1) understand the risks to cleanup sites associated with a changing climate and 2) increase the resilience of cleanup sites at each phase of the cleanup process: site investigations; remedy selection, design, and implementation; and operation and maintenance. By putting adaptation measures into place during the early stages of a cleanup, we may increase the number of feasible cleanup options, maximize their integrity, and in some situations, reduce their cost.
