We’re pleased to share results from a 24-month study evaluating the potential for cost savings associated with the off-site reuse of soil at brownfield sites and the legal framework surrounding soil reuse. Study objectives were to:
- Gather site-specific data on soil-reuse activities, costs, and driving and limiting factors for soil reuse in Minnesota.
- Examine and quantify the economic impacts of off-site soil disposal versus off-site soil reuse for marginally contaminated soil.
- Examine and quantify environmental impacts of off-site soil disposal versus off-site soil reuse.
- Summarize the regulatory and statutory evolution and current policy status of off-site soil reuse in Minnesota.
- Define the barriers to off-site soil reuse in Minnesota, both in practical application and policy.
- Recommend solutions to encourage and increase off-site reuse of marginally contaminated soil.
