Ohio EPA Notes 25 Years of Voluntary Cleanup Program

Ohio EPA recently recognized the 25-year anniversary of the agency’s Voluntary Action Program (VAP), which encourages property owners to voluntarily clean up their land for redevelopment. According to Ohio EPA, more than 13,540 acres of contaminated land on 615 sites in 69 counties have been improved since the VAP was created in September 1994. Remediated properties range from a former gas station to the sites of closed steel mills. 9/30/2019
