RECAP Workshop Presentations

Risk Evaluation / Corrective Action Program (RECAP)

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ's) Risk Evaluation/Corrective Action Program (RECAP) regulation has been promulgated and became final on October 20, 2003.  This regulation establishes the Department's minimum remediation standards for present and past uncontrolled constituent releases.  DEQ has established this Internet site as a forum to facilitate the implementation of the RECAP regulation.  The Department will update this web page to ensure that the latest information regarding RECAP is available to interested parties.   For this reason, we encourage you to visit this web site on a regular basis. 


The draft proposed revision to the RECAP is posted below for informal release to be review by interested parties.  Note: This is not the official regulatory process.

    It is important to note that no portion of the draft proposed RECAP revision can be used to evaluate or support site management decisions (including the proposed screening standards and MO-1 standards).  The current, promulgated version of the RECAP regulation, RECAP 2003, must be used.
