Division of Remediation Sites List - This list represents the public record of past and current sites located in Maine that are in the Voluntary Response Action Program (VRAP), the Brownfields Program, the Municipal Landfill Closure & Remediation Program, the Federal Facilities Program, the Superfund Program, and/or the Uncontrolled Sites Program. Sites are listed alphabetically by the municipality they are located in, and the database includes information regarding location, status, and if the property has institutional controls.
Online Remediation Site Documents Portal - until February of 2021, the Administrative Record for Remediation Sites was only available in paper format. DEP is in the process of transitioning to an electronic Administrative Record for Remediation Sites. During the transition, schedule a review of paper files by contacting the file room. Files that have been converted to electronic format are available in the searchable online “DocuWare” portal. Please note that many sites have a mix of paper and electronic files – file room staff can assist if you have questions. Tips on searching for Online Remediation Sites Documents.
