Fact Sheet: SEPS and Green Building on Contaminated Properties

Transmittal memorandum and fact sheet on supplemental environmental projects (SEPs) to promote redevelopment on contaminated properties. Issued 7/27/2004.

On March 10, 2015, OECA issued the "Supplemental Environmental Projects Policy 2015 Update" and where there are inconsistencies with this fact sheet, the 3/10/15 SEP policy supersedes and takes precedence.

The fact sheet provides information on SEPs that can serve to prevent and minimize the environmental impacts associated with the redevelopment of cleaned up contaminated properties. This document is a companion to OSRE’s 1998 fact sheet on “Using Supplemental Environmental Projects to Facilitate Brownfields Redevelopment.”
