As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946

Summaries of NFA Letters that received a CNS

Ohio’s Voluntary Action Program (VAP) was established to allow the private sector to clean up brownfields – previously-developed sites with potential contamination from industrial or commercial activity – that were not being redeveloped due to fear of litigation. The VAP sets standards for contaminated site assessment and remediation and reviews the activities conducted by certified professionals that are submitted to the Agency as No Further Action (NFA) letters to determine whether to issue covenants not to sue (CNSs).

Since 1995 the VAP has issued over 500 CNSs. Click on a site from the Google Map below, then click on the link that says, "Click here for more info" to view all of the details of the site. Please note that the data provided here does not supersede the information contained in the NFA letters and CNSs on file with the Agency.
