Once the Work Plan is approved, your property will be characterized by the extent of the onsite contamination and the exposure assessment. Characterization of your property will fall under 1 of the 4 Track criteria:
- Track 1 – No restrictions regarding the use of the property.
- Track 2 – Scope of work is based on the intended use of the property. Residential and single family housing is restricted.
- Track 3 – Restricted the same as Track 2; however, the soil cleanup objectives will be modified based on the intended future use of the property.
- Track 4 – Restricted use with specific site soil cleanup objectives. No shallow soil shall be exposed without meeting the appropriate soil cleanup objectives.
Once your property is categorized, the environmental cleanup may commence with the appropriate measures and reporting in place. After the construction/redevelopment and environmental clean-up including engineering controls are completed, the Remedial Completion Report can be submitted. If approved, the NYSDEC will issue a Certification of Completion acknowledging your completion of the BCP program and allow you to be eligible for the BCP tax credits.
