Brownfield Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs)


Connecticut's Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs) provide detailed guidance and standards that may be used at any site to determine whether or not remediation of contamination is necessary to protect human health and the environment.

RSRs do not create in and of themselves a requirement that remediation be undertaken, nor do they specify a time-frame for completing remediation.

Generally, the RSRs apply to any action taken to remediate polluted soil, surface water or a groundwater plume at or emanating from a release area, provided the remedial action is required pursuant to Chapter 445 or 446k of the Connecticut General Statutes (CGS), or voluntary remediation pursuant to Section 22a-133x or 22a-133y of the CGS.
