Brownfields Program

Brownfields are real property where the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of contamination. This can impede economic development.

The Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Environmental Response and Remediation (DERR) conducts Brownfields activities under authorities of the Voluntary Release Cleanup Act, Hazardous Substances Mitigation Act and the Small Business Liability Relief Brownfields Revitalization Act. These statutes provide mechanisms by which the DERR oversees the assessment and cleanup of Brownfields, as well as provides redevelopment planning assistance to communities struggling with Brownfields issues throughout Utah.
