Spill Cleanup

The Enforcement Program (ENF) of the Montana Department of Environmental Quality oversees the cleanup of spills or releases of hazardous or deleterious substances from non-regulated entities, pipelines, and mobile sources that do not require long-term remediation. This Standardized Cleanup Report (Report) format was developed to provide a guideline for the information ENF requires for closure of spills and releases.

Standardized Cleanup Statement

The Enforcement Program of DEQ developed this guidance to assist environmental consultants and cleanup contractors to determine the minimum number of samples required to be collected when conducting assessment and remedial actions at release and spill sites conducted under ENF’s oversight. ENF classifies release or spill sites as either Small Sites (an excavation floor of 10,000 square feet or less) or Large Sites (an excavation floor of more than 10,000 square feet).
