The Brownfields Reuse office is charged with coordinating remediation and reuse efforts at brownfield sites and piloting innovative approaches to expedite the revitalization process.
The office administers the Brownfields Development Area (BDA) program, working as partners with communities affected by multiple brownfields to design and implement remediation and reuse plans for these properties simultaneously. The BDA program coordinates planning, resource acquisition and remediation with a focus on reuse. Individual BDAs are designated through a highly selective application process.
The office also administers several brownfield incentive programs including the Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation (HDSRF) program, the Brownfield Reimbursement Program and the federal tax incentive certifications required for expensing brownfield remediation costs.
The department works closely with other involved state agencies and offices, including the Economic Development Authority and the Department of Community Affairs, Office of Smart Growth, to remediate and revitalize communities and neighborhoods.
The Office of Dredging and Sediment Technology is responsible for evaluating and permitting of all coastal dredging projects, dredged material management facilities, port development and marine commerce. The focus of the dredged material management program in the state is the beneficial use of the material in a manner that is protective of human health and the environment.
