Brownfield/UECA/Voluntary Remediation SitesDownload Service Brief

EnviroProbe’s team of environmental professionals and scientists has performed Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III environmental site assessments (ESAs) and remediation at hundreds of sites.

The Voluntary Remediation and Redevelopment Act (VRRA) was enacted to encourage the voluntary cleanup of Brownfield sites, or those properties that are contaminated, or perceived to be contaminated, abandoned, and/or under utilized. The Voluntary Remediation and Redevelopment Rule (VRRR) is set out in WV Code of State Regulations, Title 60, Series 3 (60CSR3). The VRRA limits enforcement action by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) and limits the potential liability under environmental laws and rules for those parties who remediate sites according to the standards provided in the VRRR.

The VRRA encourages flexibility and does not assign a “one-size fits all” approach to remediation standards. Risk assessment techniques are used to evaluate potential and real risks to human and ecological receptors. The data obtained during the site assessment and development of the conceptual site model, in combination with state and federal guidance, are used to set unique remediation standards for a site based on the historical, current and future use of the site.

EnviroProbe personnel have been the Licensed Remediation Specialist, WVDEP Project Manager of record, or Project Manager for more than 15 Brownfield/Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP) sites in West Virginia. These multi-disciplinary projects involved environmental site assessment, risk assessment, remediation work plan preparation/design, remediation work plan implementation, and follow-up reporting and/or monitoring.
