State Approaches for Drycleaner Remediation Programs

        Jump to:

This paper, developed by the State Coalition for Remediation of Drycleaners’ (SCRD) Program Development/Administration Subgroup, identifies and discusses five primary components of state drycleaner cleanup programs.  These components include:

Although states programs may vary greatly they all contain aspects of these five components.  This document explores the various approaches/options states have incorporated into their cleanup programs.  For each of the components discussed in the paper, there is a section on "considerations", which offers more insights into these various approaches.  This document can be used as a resource for states in the development stage or for states that are considering restructuring their programs. 

This paper supports the SCRD's primary objectives to:

  1. Provide a forum for the exchange of information and the discussion of implementation issues related to established state drycleaner programs;
  2. Share information and lessons learned with states without drycleaner-specific programs; and
  3. Encourage the use of innovative technologies in drycleaner remediation.
