Pennsylvania's Land Recycling Program (Voluntary Cleanup Program) was established by a series of legislation enacted in 1995. This Program, simply known as 'Act 2', encourages the voluntary cleanup and reuse of contaminated commercial and industrial sites. This webinar will present a general overview of Act 2, including the Chapter 250 regulations which govern the program. Additionally, several of the main cornerstones of the Program will be discussed, including uniform cleanup standards and the liability relief extended to present and future property owners.
This webinar is relevant to any scientist, regulator, or stakeholder who is interested in learning about the Land Recycling Program or getting a refresher in Act 2 basics.
