The CT Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) is continuing in its process of establishing a Release-Based Cleanup Program in Connecticut, to ultimately replace the Transfer Act.

The topical subcommittees of the Working Group established to advise DEEP regarding the development of regulations for the new remediation program, have released formal “concept papers” for review and comment.  The papers are available here, and develop key issues and make recommendations to the Working Group to inform the regulation drafting.

The deadline to submit comments to DEEP by e-mail at is July 6, 2021.

Please contact our Environmental group if you would like additional information or need advice about the State’s ongoing new program development:
