Montana's Brownfields Programs

The Montana DEQ’s Brownfields Program works collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders to address Hazardous Substance and Petroleum Brownfields sites across Montana. The program provides both technical and financial expertise on the assessment and cleanup of Brownfields properties. DEQ’s Brownfields Program also provides grant writing assistance, outreach, and workshops for communities interested in Brownfields. http://deq.mt.gov/Land/Brownfields

Petroleum Brownfields Program

DEQ’s Petroleum Brownfields Program is part of the Petroleum Tank Cleanup Section which directs and oversees cleanup of petroleum releases. The Petroleum Brownfields Program works closely with the Petroleum Tank Release Compensation Board (PTRCB) which can be leveraged with Brownfields funding to provide financial assistance for eligible corrective action cleanup costs. The Petroleum Brownfields Program also assists property owners and communities with sites that are approaching an enforcement action through the Petroleum Tank Cleanup Section.

Hazardous Substance Brownfields Program

DEQ’s Hazardous Substance Brownfields Program is part of the Cleanup, Protection, and Redevelopment Section which addresses multiple types of contaminated properties. The Hazardous Substance Brownfields Program personnel work on both State Superfund and Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Facilities ranging from multiple acre industrial facilities to lead-paint and asbestos contaminated historic structures. The Hazardous Substance Brownfields Program provides regulatory oversight for the assessment and cleanup of sites using Brownfields funding. In addition, personnel have assisted communities apply for and manage non-Brownfields grants to address publically owned contaminated properties.
