Hazardous Waste Program
Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Program Interactive Mapping System
The Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Program offering a new, more powerful interactive map of program sites.
- Sites color-coded according to investigation/cleanup status.
- See a brief site history and summary of remediation performed.
- Links to site documents such as the Certification of Completion and Environmental Covenant for each site, saving you phone calls.
- New, plain-English Environmental Restrictions At A Glance page customized for each site with activity and use limitations.
- Data updated daily for the latest information.
- Downloadable data files available to use in your GIS system.
Why We Did It
Long-Term Stewardship - This project began as an avenue for providing long-term stewardship information about sites closed with land use restrictions. As more and more sites are closed with some contamination left in place and resulting activity and use limitations, maintaining those protections depends more and more upon making information available to the right people at the right time. The Missouri Environmental Covenants Act of 2008 recognized this need by requiring an information system to be developed. For more information on these sites, visit the department's Long-Term Stewardship Web page.
Other sites are important, too - The need for information goes beyond sites with restrictions. The fact a site is cleaned up to unrestricted use levels and closed out with no restrictions on future use is a critical piece of environmental data about that property. Some sites take years to reach completion, so the status of ongoing cleanup sites is important, too. The system includes all these sites, and only excludes sites that withdrew or were terminated from the program prior to completion.
Easy access to site information - One of the most frequent calls we receive is the request for information about a particular site, the status of the cleanup, or copies of essential documents. Making this information available directly over the Web saves time for both of us, making your site research faster and easier with fewer Sunshine requests.
Downloadable geodatabase files – We believe local government zoning and permitting authorities as well as utilities are important partners in ensuring appropriate land use and preventing accidental exposures. The department is offering geodatabase files for download from our file transfer protocol, or FTP, site for use in local GIS systems. When your questions go beyond the information provided, we’re still a phone call away.
The Future: A Comprehensive Hazardous Waste Site Mapping System – Although the new map shows only Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Program sites now, the programming behind it was designed with the ultimate goal of connecting other Hazardous Waste Program databases. Eventually, the map will include Resource Conservation and Recovery Act sites, Federal Facilities, Superfund and tanks, giving customers a one-stop shop for information about Missouri hazardous waste sites.
