The Division’s Environmental Cleanup Program staff work with facility owners and other interested stakeholders to manage environmental site investigations, cleanups and long-term environmental management of properties impacted by historic or current hazardous waste operations. The program is intended to streamline the cleanup process by focusing on reducing risks posed by the contamination at the site in order to provide protection of human health and the environment within the State of Utah.
