A set of sweeping amendments to how oil and hazardous waste sites are managed in Massachusetts became final on April 25, 2014.  Changes were made to the Site management structure regarding how Waste Disposal Sites are prioritized and their end-points for closure.  Other changes are technical and include robust provisions to address vapor intrusion and indoor air quality, the remedy of free product Sites, consideration for green remediation, and management of contaminated surplus soils.  But what do the new Waste Site Cleanup rules mean for development and construction in Massachusetts?   Will these changes hinder or help development? Do they reduce or increase development costs? Learn what the changes occurred and what’s important to different sectors in the real estate development and construction – private development, infrastructure, and investment.  Industry experts will briefly review the regulatory changes followed by a panel discussion from those in real estate.
