MassDEP has prepared revisions to their Massachusetts Contingency Plan ("MCP", 310 CMR 40.0000). The MCP relates to regulations governing the notification, assessment, cleanup and closure of oil and hazardous material disposal sites. You can read their proposed revisions here.
They held a public hearing today, May 23, to solicit input and comments on the proposed changes. FRRACS members attended and provided written and oral testimony. You can watch a video of the testimonies here.

Comments can be submitted by email to email@example.com or by mail to: Elizabeth Callahan, MassDEP, One Winter Street, Boston, 02108. The public comment period ends July 19, 2019. We need to make sure that the regulations are strengthened. Based on their current proposal, they intend to allow MORE pollution. This is not acceptable.
