Vermont Hazardous Sites Database

Waste Management Interactive Database (WM-ID)

The hazardous waste sites list has been replaced by the Waste Management Interactive Database (WM-ID) and is now available for public use. The WM-ID is updated on a daily basis and allows for users to identify and check the current status of hazardous waste sitesin Vermont. The WM-ID also hosts available PDF documents that are relative to the site conditions in addition to viewing the site location on the Agency's Natural Resources Atlas mapping application.

ANR Natural Resources Atlas:
ANR Natural Resources Atlas

Geographic locations of all hazardous waste sites are projected on the Agency's Natural Resources Atlas mapping application. In addition to viewing the spatial attributes of a site, other important environmental datasets can also be projected in tandem, allowing for a more inclusive environmental assesment. Other related datasets consist of the underground storage tank layer, streams and water bodies, the "well driller" water supply layer, and many more. The hazardous waste sites layer is updated on a weekly schedule. Click here to launch the ANR Natural Resources Atlas.

In 1991, the Hazardous Sites database and the Petroleum Sites database were consolidated. This list includes petroleum as well as non-petroleum sites. Prior to database consolidation, different site numbering systems were used. In order to minimize confusion, the petroleum site numbering system was adopted. This system consists of a two or four digit prefix (year site was identified) and a four digit (site specific) number. All sites identified since January 1, 1991 have been consecutively numbered beginning with 911000. Sites identified prior to January 1, 1991, have retained their previously assigned site identification numbers. Due to database requirements for a six digit site number, the non-petroleum sites identified prior to January 1, 1991 have a 77 prefix added to their previously assigned site identification numbers.

If you have any questions about the database, or need further information on a specific site, please feel free to contact Chuck.Schwer@state.vt.us, or another member of the Sites Management Section staff at:
