Brownfield Public Record

Georgia received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Federal Fiscal Year 2004 to enhance its public record capabilities. Using funding established under the Brownfields provisions of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) Section 128(a), Georgia has developed a Public Record for properties undergoing voluntary actions under the state response program. The larger component of the public record for voluntary cleanups consists of the document repository, or property files, available for review at 2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. SE, Suite 1154 East Tower, Atlanta, Georgia, from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Site files for properties undergoing response actions under the authority of the Georgia Hazardous Site Response (state superfund) Act are located at Suite 1462, East Tower, at the same street address. Please contact the Brownfields Development Unit at (404) 656-7802 for additional information. [December, 2004]

Georgia Brownfield Properties

Brownfields Summary Table (MS Excel) [Revised Jan 2014]

Summary tables provide information on properties that have cleanup actions planned, in progress or completed under Georgia's Brownfields law, the Hazardous Site Reuse and Redevelopment Act.  The tables list the cleanup standard (risk reduction standard or RRS) that was achieved, and properties with use restrictions are identified.  Both Hazardous Site Inventory (State Superfund List or HSI) properties and non-HSI properties are presented.

Institutional Controls

Georgia has developed an institutional controls tracking mechanism for properties where CERCLA 128(a) funding may be used for oversight. Georgia's state superfund law, the Hazardous Site Response Act (O.C.G.A. §12-8-90), establishes requirements for institutional controls at sites that have been placed on the hazardous site inventory (the state superfund list). These requirements apply to all listed sites prior to attainment of cleanup standards, and continue to apply to certain sites even after cleanup is complete. CERCLA 128(a) funding will be used to maintain and verify institutional controls at non-HSI properties that are undergoing response actions under the Georgia Hazardous Site Reuse and Redevelopment Act.
