Contaminated Materials Management External Advisory Group

The Brownfields Study Group's 2015 Report - Investing in Wisconsin [PDF] identifies several issues associated with brownfields redevelopment. The Contaminated Materials Management External Advisory Group (CMMEAG) was created to further examine these issues.

The goals of the advisory group is to find workable, economical and safe solutions for the onsite and offsite management of contaminated materials – such as soil, sediment and other waste materials. The group will provide the DNR with constructive feedback on these topics as they relate to environmental cleanups, redevelopments and other construction projects.

The DNR has also appointed the Contaminated Sediment External Advisory Group to provide feedback on contaminated sediment topics associated with environmental cleanups, redevelopments and other construction projects. It is anticipated that there will be significant collaboration between the two advisory groups on issues relating to dredging, soil management and disposal.

Upcoming meetings

There are no scheduled meetings at this time.

Meetings will be held at a frequency determined by the group.
