Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England
Process for Risk Evaluation, Property Analysis and Reuse Decisions
FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS CONSIDERING THE REUSE OF CONTAMINATED PROPERTIES
What is the PREPARED Workbook?
The Workbook was developed by EPA New England and its contractors for local governments (it should also be useful to states, counties, tribes and quasi-governmental redevelopment entities). PREPARED is a risk management framework for evaluating various actions that a local government might take to bring about a desired reuse at contaminated properties that it does not currently own. These actions are referred to in the Workbook as property recovery actions. Worksheets are also provided to help document and guide the evaluation process. More information »
