Site Remediation Program

The Site Remediation Program (SRP) provides Remediation Applicants (i.e., any persons seeking to perform investigative or remedial activities) the opportunity to receive review, technical assistance, and no further remediation determinations from the Illinois EPA. The SRP is designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of the Remediation Applicants. The goals and scope of actions at SRP sites are normally defined by the Remediation Applicants.

The Illinois EPA is authorized to issue No Further Remediation (NFR) letters to the Remedial Applicants who have successfully demonstrated, through proper investigation and, when warranted, remedial action, that environmental conditions at SRP sites do not present a significant risk to human health or the environment. The NFR letter signifies a release from further responsibilities under the Illinois Environmental Protection Act. SRP program activities are paid by the parties requesting Illinois EPA oversight.
