Spills Management

Spill response photo The DEC Spill Response Team assesses the environmental impact of hazardous materials spills, oversees the cleanup of spills, and enforces environmental regulations triggered by spills (VT Hazardous Waste Management Regulations, 7-105). The Team is available 24-hours a day, year round. The Team works with First Response organizations and Responsible Parties to determine if a spill impacts or threatens sensitive receptors such as surface waters or drinking water wells. DEC Spill Team members oversee the cleanup of a spill, and enforce environmental regulations that are triggered by a spill. The Team has the authority to hire cleanup contractors if the responsible party is unwilling or unable to conduct the cleanup, or unidentified. The DEC is required to pursue the recovery of the cleanup costs at a later date.


The Waste Management Division has introduced the Waste Management Interactive Database or WM-ID. The WM-ID hosts a number of databases used by various sections of the Waste Management Division, including the Vermont Spills Database. Recent and historical spill information including the spill manager, release location, hazardous waste contents, status updates and more can be accessed through the WM-ID. The Spills database can be accessed directly by clicking here.
