The Sites Management Section (SMS) provides State oversight for the investigation and cleanup of properties where a release of a hazardous material has contaminated the environment, including soils, groundwater, surface water, and indoor air.

A list of properties being managed under this program is maintained by SMS and can be found via online database (ERT, formerly WM-ID) and by geographic location (Atlas).  This link will take you to the Environmental Research Tool (ERT) and the ANR Atlas

For most sites the ERT database includes electronic copies of important site information, such as the initial site investigation report.  Please note that all site documents are not posted. The ERT does not take the place of a public record request. If there are reports you are interested in, please contact the Project Manager for the Site (locate your site on the ERT to identify the DEC Manager). If you wish to review the entire site file, please email Wendy Anderson to complete a public records request.  

The purpose of the Natural Resources Atlas is to provide geographic information about environmental features and sites that the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources manages, monitors, permits, or regulates. In addition to standard map navigation tools, this site allows you to link from sites to documents where available, generate reports, export search results, import data, search, measure, mark-up, query map features, and print PDF maps.  The Natural Resource Atlas can be used to provide geospatial context to your questions, and allows you to explore layers of both environmental and land use data.
