Environmental Compliance

The Environmental Compliance office is a support unit for many of the Department of Transportation’s day-to-day operations and for the design and construction phases of the Department’s capital project program.

The Environmental Compliance unit provides technical support and regulatory guidance to other Department units on matters related to regulated wastes and contaminated materials. Environmental Compliance staff will coordinate the environmental investigations that evaluate for the presence or extent of contaminated soil or groundwater at the Department of Transportation’s operating facilities or in advance of planned capital projects. Environmental Compliance will also coordinate pre-construction or pre-demolition hazardous building material surveys. This office serves as the DOT’s liaison with federal and State agencies that regulate remediation and abatement activities.

Enviromental compliance support is provided by this office on matters related to the quality of stormwater associated with facilities that support the Department’s maintenance operations and with transportation infrastructure in general.
