About the Coalition

The State Coalition for Remediation of Drycleaners was established in 1998, with support from the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation. It is comprised of representatives of states with established drycleaner remediation programs. Currently the member states are Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin. In addition, participation in SCRD as "Represented States" is open to states without drycleaner-specific programs, but active in the remediation of drycleaner sites under other authorities. Alaska, California, Delaware, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and Virginia currently are SCRD "Represented States." The Coalition's primary objectives are to provide a forum for the exchange of information and the discussion of implementation issues related to established state drycleaner programs; share information and lessons learned with states without drycleaner-specific programs; and encourages the use of innovative technologies in drycleaner remediation. The Coalition conducts regular conference calls and has an annual meeting that focus on administering drycleaner cleanup programs and site assessment and remediation technologies. States interested in participating, may contact Scott Huckstep, the Chair
